A HUGE outbreak at a school in Dundee, Scotland has seen 17 staff and multiple pupils test positive for Covid-19.
Kingspark School in Dundee was closed last week after six adults tested positive for the virus, with a further spike in cases announced on Sunday. NHS Tayside said in an update on Sunday that 17 staff, two more two pupils and three community contacts had also tested positive.
Two other school sites in Dundee have also been identified as a result of contact tracing connected to the Kingspark outbreak. A year two primary class at St Peter and Paul’s School has been asked to self-isolate until September 2 after a ‘person’ tested positive. Children who attended the Happy Times out-of-school club at Downfield Primary School are also being asked to self-isolate until the same date following a positive test result.
Dundee City Council and the NHS in Tayside have now decided to temporarily shut the education hub until at least next week to allow for a deep clean.
