Quarantine measures imposed on a class at a school in the East End were lifted today.

A letter from the health ministry’s epidemiology and surveillance unit to parents and staff at St George’s Preparatory School said a risk assessment had given an all-clear.

The letter added: “As such, the Chief Medical Officer has advised that students, parents, families teachers and staff previously advised to quarantine in relation to this potential exposure may be released from quarantine and resume normal activities – that is, return to school, work and other activities.”

The Primary 2 class at the school and some teachers were ordered to quarantine last Sunday.

The move came after a child in the class was found to have been in contact with someone with Covid-19.

The letter warned that the use of masks, good hand hygiene and social distancing must be followed at the school to limit the risk of Covid-19.

It added that anyone who showed symptoms that could indicate infection should contact their GP.
