Four more Lincolnshire schools with coronavirus cases on Tuesday

County council working with 71 schools

A further four schools in Lincolnshire have positive cases of coronavirus on Tuesday.

Lincolnshire County Council said on Tuesday, November 10 that it is working with 71 schools and eight nurseries with COVID-19 infections.

The latest additions to the county council’s list are South View Community Primary School (Crowland), St Margaret Primary School (Withern), Westmere Primary (Spalding) and Ermine Primary Academy (Lincoln).

Tower Road Academy in Boston also reportedly has cases of coronavirus. The Lincolnite contacted the school and the query was passed onto the headteacher, but there was no reply by the time of publication.

The only Lincolnshire schools currently listed as closed are St Lawrence School (Horncastle) and Holton Le Clay Pre-School. YPLP in Lincoln was previously listed as closed, but it is now open again and Public Health are monitoring, the council has confirmed.

When there is a positive result at a school it is considered an active case for 14 days from the onset of the person’s symptoms. If there is another positive test at the school during that period the 14 days start afresh.

If there are multiple cases the school will only be considered a closed case 14 days after the last positive test, which is why some remain on the active case list longer than others.

Andy Fox, consultant in public health, said: “As of this Tuesday, Lincolnshire’s Health Protection Team is currently working with 71 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.

“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.”
