The children will therefore have to stay at home for a period of 14 days.
This decision was made due to the outbreak of several cases of COVID-19 among staff and teachers as well as the reporting of two new cases in children in two different groups.
The public health department says it wants to control the spread of the virus. Students, teachers and staff will therefore find themselves in isolation for 14 days, starting Monday. All students in the school should be tested at the start of the week.
