(RCN) George Town Primary School has been closed following a student testing positive for Covid-19. All students, staff, and teachers will be tested for the virus on Tuesday.

“Since receiving notification late Monday evening that one of our students has tested positive for COVID-19, we, along with Public Health, have immediately activated our Continuity of Operations Plan for schools. In consultation with Public Health authorities, our staff will be on the ground at GTPS to oversee the implementation of the appropriate measures, and to provide support and guidance where needed,” assured Director of Education Services, Mr Mark Ray.

Parents of students of the George Town Primary School (GTPS) are asked to assist as follows:

  • Students and their families should remain at home until they are contacted on Tuesday morning by the school administration and advised of a time their year group will be tested for COVID-19
  • Students and accompanying family members are asked to wear masks and take all precautions around hand hygiene and physical distancing
  • School facilities and buses will be sanitised
  • Families will be supported by the school counsellor and other staff

The Cayman Islands Government is recommending that all students wear a face mask in school, to protect themselves from Covid-19.
