Five more Lincolnshire schools with COVID-19 cases

A Lincoln nursery too

Five more schools and one nursery in Lincolnshire have positive cases of coronavirus on Tuesday.

Lincolnshire County Council said on October 27 that it is working with 94 schools with COVID-19 infections.

It is also working with 11 nurseries, with Young Tots Nursery in Lincoln the most recent addition.

The latest schools to be added to the county council’s list are Caistor Grammar School, St Thomas’ CE Primary Academy (Boston), White Wood’s Academy (Gainsborough), Scotter Primary School and Village pre-school at Manor Farm (North Hykeham).

Hawthorn Tree School (Boston), Woodlands Academy (Spilsby), Springwell Alternative Academy (Grantham), St George’s Academy (Ruskington) and Little Learners Pre-School (Lincoln) are the schools currently closed, according to the county council’s list.

Meanwhile, some 176 students and staff at the University of Lincoln have tested positive for coronavirus. The number of students at Bishop Grosseteste University currently self-isolating due to a positive test result has risen to 12.

Tony McGinty, consultant in public health, said: “As of this Tuesday, Lincolnshire’s Health Protection Team is currently working with 94 schools that have had confirmed cases of coronavirus.

“All schools continue to report the situation to us and are taking action to limit the potential spread of the virus when schools return – this will mean some pupils and staff self-isolating as a precaution where necessary during half term. Because of the length of isolation periods involved this may affect return to school for some people.

“Like the rest of the country, Lincolnshire has seen case numbers rise in recent weeks, and an increasing number of schools affected.

“However, the majority of schools will fully open next week, and those affected are working really well to limit both the risk of the virus spreading and the impact on the pupils’ education.”
