Nine more schools in Lincolnshire with COVID-19 cases

And two more nurseries too

A further nine schools and two nurseries in Lincolnshire have positive cases of coronavirus on Thursday.

Lincolnshire County Council said on October 22 that it is working with 84 schools with COVID-19 infections. It is also working with eight nurseries.

There are 14 schools in North East Lincolnshire with current active suspected or confirmed cases. There have been at least seven schools with cases in North Lincolnshire.

The latest additions to the list are Scampton Primary School, Sutterton Fourfields Primary School (Boston), St Botolph’s Primary School (Sleaford), Fleet Wood Lane Primary School (Spalding), King Edward VI Academy (Spilsby), Kirkby on Bain Primary School, Spalding Parish School, The National Junior School (Grantham) and William Alvey School (Sleaford).

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 council’s list.

Andy Fox, consultant in public health, said: “As of this Thursday, Lincolnshire’s Health Protection Team is currently working with 84 schools that have had confirmed cases of coronavirus.

“All schools are taking action to limit the potential spread of the virus, with some pupils and staff self-isolating as a precaution where necessary.

“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 remain fully open, and those affected are working really well to limit both the risk of the virus spreading and the impact on the pupils’ education.”
