Dear Parents and Caregivers Last night, we heard the news we did not want to…
Information provided by Ministry of Education today.
This afternoon, the Director General of Health announced the confirmation of a third case of COVID–19. Today’s announcement involved a family that has two children at two Auckland Schools – Ormiston Junior College and Auckland Grammar. The family is now in self-isolation. Neither child has shown any symptoms and they are not currently showing any symptoms. They are in self-isolation in case they do develop the virus.
The impact on schools is almost identical to yesterday’s situation. None of these students had or showed signs of any symptoms when they attended schools. This means they were not infectious which in turn means there are no risks to other students or to teachers and school staff. With this virus you cannot be infectious if you show no symptoms and you cannot as a contact of a contact of someone with the virus get the virus.
