AN entire class of primary children and their teacher have been told to self-isolate after a positive case of Covid-19.

Families at St Albert's Primary have been contacted by public health officials and told to quarantine for 14 days.

Each child at the Polloksheilds school has been issued with an iPad so that lessons can continue to be taught remotely.

A council spokeswoman said "robust" infection control is underway at the school.

In a letter sent home to parents, NHS officials say there is no evidence of any transmission taking place within the school.

She added: “The school is working closely with our public health colleagues who’ve confirmed that robust control measures are in place at the school, and there is currently no evidence of transmission within the school itself.

“The test and protect team has contacted any families whose child needs to self-isolate as a precaution for 14 days and the school has already arranged for these pupils to be taught online during this period.

“A public health letter of reassurance has been sent to all families with information and advice.”

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde has been contacted for comment.
