Written by Harvey Williamson on October 9, 2020
Newport’s Burton Borough School says it has one pupil that has tested positive.
Krissi Carter, principal of Burton Borough said that the student who was tested positive had not been in school for a week and it was believed that they contracted COVID-19 through a family member.
“After discussion with the Health Protection Hub, it has been decided that there is no need for us to close any bubbles. The student has been advised that they must self-isolate for 10 days, in line with national guidance.
“Telford and Wrekin’s Health Protection Hub will be carrying out contact tracing to inform any members of the wider community who may have been in contact with the family, should they need to self-isolate.
“From everybody at Burton Borough School, we wish the student who has been tested positive and their family members a speedy recovery.”
