Young children in two classes at a Fife school have been told to stay at home for two weeks after a pupil contracted coronavirus.
Parents of youngsters in the P1D and P1A/2C classes at Capshard Primary School were told they must self-isolate and not return to school until September 21.
In an update issued on Tuesday, NHS Fife said the pupil with the virus had mild symptoms.
It also said: “There continues to be no evidence of any onward transmission within the school and the risk of contracting coronavirus for both pupils and school staff remains low.
“Following a risk assessment by NHS Fife, pupils in Primary 1D and Primary 1A/2C are being contacted by the NHS Test and Protect team who will provide appropriate public health support and advice.
“Parents are being advised that pupils in these classes must self-isolate for 14 days from September 4, and can return to school on Monday, September 21, providing they remain symptom-free.”
NHS Fife issued a reminder that anyone experiencing Covid-19 symptoms – a high temperature, a new, continuous cough or a loss or change to sense of smell or taste – should arrange a test using the UK Government Citizens’ Portal or by calling 0800 028 2816.
