A "SMALL" number of Coleg Cambria students have tested positive for coronavirus.

The location of the Coleg Cambria site where students have tested positive remains undisclosed, and an exact figure of how many students have tested positive has not been provided.

The college says that it has been notified by Public Health Wales of the news, and that the students who have tested positive are now self-isolating.

A spokesperson for Coleg Cambria, which has sites in Deeside, Wrexham and Denbighshire, said: "As a precautionary measure and to prevent the spread of infection we have taken immediate action to instruct the identified cohort of learners not to attend college for a specified period of time. This action is based on the advice received from Public Health Wales.

"Any students that are instructed to self isolate as part of the Track, Test and Protect Service, will be able to fully engage with learning through our remote delivery method.

"The safety and well being of our students and staff is paramount to us. The college continues to be vigilant following Government advice for Covid-19 in relation to health, safety and hygiene."

One of the largest colleges in the UK, Coleg Cambria has approximately 7,000 full time students and 20,000 part-time learners and has many international links.
