Coronavirus: Second case confirmed at West Norfolk high school
A West Norfolk secondary school has this morning confirmed its second case of coronavirus.
Officials at the Marshland High School in West Walton say they were informed last night that a year 11 student had tested positive for the virus, after displaying symptoms during last week's half-term holiday.
Deputy headteacher Tom Duce said a short time ago: "Public Health England has advised us that no further action is required at this time because the student had not recently been in school, and that no student or member of staff needs to isolate.
"Marshland remains open for all year groups and all our other students should continue to attend as normal if they remain well."
The announcement follows yesterday's news of two further cases at the Springwood High School in Lynn which, like Marshland, is part of the West Norfolk Academies Trust.
Its sister school, St Clements High in Terrington St Clement, confirmed a case last week, along with three other Lynn schools which are not part of WNAT - the King Edward VII Academy , the King's Lynn Academy and the Greyfriars Academy .
