A positive case of Covid-19 has been confirmed at Seely Primary School in Nottingham.

A member of staff tested positive on Friday 17 July. They had previously self-isolated at home as soon as they felt unwell and did not return to the Sherwood school.

Parents have been informed and two class ‘bubbles’ of children are isolating at home in line with Public Health England guidance.

Thorough cleaning has been carried out and the school remains open to other year groups.

Public Health advice remains the same: if you have Covid-19 symptoms such as a new, continuous cough, a high temperature or loss of taste or smell, please self-isolate and get tested for Covid-19.

The best way to combat the spread of the virus in our communities is:

  • Maintain social distance
  • If you’re out in our city, keep left on pavements and pathways
  • Wear a face covering in shops and on public transport
  • Wash hands with soap and water for 20 seconds
  • Get a test for Covid-19 if you have symptoms

Nottingham City Council has a Local Outbreak Control Plan that will help us work with partners to identify hotspots and take action to control the spread of the virus. You can read the plan here.
