PUPILS at Hawarden High School were advised to self isolate over the weekend after a positive case of Covid-19.

It comes after the school was notified of a positive coronavirus case in Year 11.

Hawarden's headteacher took to social media over the weekend to alert parents.

The post read: "Unfortunately, we have received notification of a positive Covid case in Year 11 this morning. We are working on identifying close contacts in the hope that the remainder of the year group can return to school tomorrow. As a precaution, all students should remain at home today

"We have now been able to identify close contacts and all of those families have been emailed a letter informing them of the need to self-isolate. All other pupils, including Year 11 pupils who have not been identified as contacts, can attend school tomorrow.

"Please do continue to be alert for symptoms of Covid in your child and obtain a test, if necessary.

"Please also be aware that the relaxation of mask wearing has not yet come into force in Wales, with this case highlighting that the virus is still circulating in the community."

Mold Alun School also confirmed they received reports of a positive case in Year 11.

All contacts of the positive case have been advised to self-isolate but also pupils who were travelling on a local bus.

Pupils who used the P&O Lloyd bus from Connah's Quay between Wednesday, May 12 and Friday, May 14, have been asked to self isolate until May 25.
