Two students in Region Seven have tested positive for Coronavirus and are now in isolation. The tests were conducted two days ago and the results were returned today.
The two students are residents of the dormitories at the Bartica Secondary and the Three Miles Secondary School. Both dorms have since been visited by Health officials and all of the students being housed in the two facilities are to be tested.
Those who test positive for coronavirus will face 14 days of isolation while those who test negative will face 7 days of isolation before they are allowed to return to their classrooms.
Additionally, health officials have decided that those students from far flung communities who travel to attend the two schools and live in at the dorms will all be quarantined and tested before they are allowed to go back to their classrooms.
Health officials intend to visit another dorm facility for students in the Region Seven area in the coming days to carry out Coronavirus tests.
The Ministry of Education on Monday reopened schools for 4th, 5th and 6th Form students across the country.
The Ministry made a decision to have all students in school live-in facilities tested after eight students at President’s College tested positive for coronavirus after they returned to their dorms this past weekend.
