Students from Whitecross school have been sent home to self-isolate after positive case of Covid-19 confirmed. 

As a result, 24 students have been told to self-isolate for 14days.

Karen Wright, director of public health for Herefordshire, said: “I can confirm that a Year 7 pupil at Whitecross High School, Hereford has tested positive for Covid-19.

"We would like to reassure parents and carers that we are working closely with the school and swift action has been taken to identify close contacts.

“There are 24 pupils identified as close contacts and they have been sent home to self-isolate for 14 days.

"All other pupils should continue to attend school as planned.

“We have worked with all our schools who have put robust measures in place to minimise the risk of coronavirus spreading.

"We understand parents will be concerned but we can expect to see more cases in schools and the process of testing and contact tracing is part of the ‘new normal’.
