A TEACHER at Mina Sachs Primary School tested positive for Covid-19 last Thursday, and five colleagues who came into contact with her have been placed quarantine.
This was confirmed by the school principal Richard Namaseb on Monday.
He said the 28 pre-primary pupils, who were in direct contact with the teacher, had been sent home.
Namaseb said the pupils will be tested for Covid-19 on Wednesday.
“Health officials will contact their parents to get consent for them to undergo a Covid-19 test,” he added.
The principal said teaching and learning will continue at the school as relief teachers were brought in on temporary basis to replace those who are under quarantine.
“Although some staff are jittery over exposure to Covid-19, we are continuing with learning and teaching on the advice of health officials.
