COVID cases at Brookside Academy, Street
Brookside Academy in Street has written to parents warning that two pupils have tested positive for COVID 19. One in year 2 and a second in year 6.
We reported a similar incident in Taunton last week. Year groups at Bishop Foxton’s were asked to self-isolate after pupils with the virus were identified.
Interestingly this time the advice appears to have changed. Although, as was the case with Bishop Foxes, the school is taking advice from Public Health England. The school say they have been told they can remain open. All pupils should attend classes as normal unless they show symptoms.
Pupils showing symptoms must self isolate and attempt to get a test.
