Only School in Spanish Province Closes 10 Classrooms Due to COVID Infections

THE ONLY School in Gerona, Seville, has been forced to close 10 classrooms due to 8 pupils testing positive for the Coronavirus.

Eight pupils and one teacher tested positive for the virus at the school,  forcing authorities in the municipality to order the closure of ten classrooms.

The Fernando Feliú Center for Infant and Primary Education (CEIP) in the Sevillian municipality of Gerena has been partially closed. A total of ten classrooms have been shut completely after positive cases of COVID-19 were confirmed from a teacher and seven students, all from different classes.

Ten classrooms have been closed since Monday,  seven are for Infants and four and five years and another three are for Primary. All the students of these classes will now be given telematic/video teaching during the quarantine period. The rest of the courses will carry on as normal at the centre.

The management of this public school, in coordination with the health authorities, had agreed late on Sunday the partial suspension of the classes. This is the standard move following the protocol established for this situation. The management is informing families about the courses and groups affected. For its part, the Gerena City Council has informed, through social networks, that a thorough disinfection of all the school buildings has now been carried out. This is apart from the cleaning that is carried out on a daily basis.

Schools in Spain Andalusia have only fairly recently opened, having been closed since March this year.
