A YEAR group at a Flintshire high school have been sent home to self-isolate due to a positive Covid case.

Year 7 at Elfed High School in Buckley have been told to self-isolate after Test, Trace and Protect contacted the school.

Parents have been told to collect their child immediately. Further details will be released by the school in due course.

Current self-isolation guidance in Wales is as follows:

If you are a close contact, self-isolation and what tests you should take will depend on your vaccination status, your age, your occupation and if someone in your household has tested positive or has symptoms.

If you are a close contact of someone with the suspected or confirmed Omicron variant, you must self-isolate for 10 days, regardless of your vaccination status or age.
