Coronavirus: Elite Sydney school shut after positive COVID-19 test | Nine News Australia

New South Wales Education Treasurer Mark Scott discusses the closure of an elite Sydney boys’ school after a student tested positive to COVID-19.

Translated from Dutch NOS radio today:

At a primary school in Eygelshoven (South Limburg), the coronavirus was diagnosed in four staff members. They have been quarantined, reports regional broadcaster 1Limburg.

The case at primary school De Veldhof came to light when a teacher turned out to be infected. The three other infections emerged from source and contact investigations. …


All parents have been informed about the infections. As long as their children don’t show symptoms of Covid-19, they can just go to school.

If a person shows symptoms of COVID-19, then it may already be too late. At first sight healthy people, not showing symptoms (yet) may infect others.

COVID-19: Parents fearful of sending their children back to school

[Conservative] Education Secretary Gavin Williamson has sought to reassure parents and teachers over the government’s plans to reopen schools, but many are worried.

Translated from Dutch NOS radio today:

[‘Moderate’ christian trade union] CNV Education conducted a poll showing that 49 percent of the 7,000 members who responded would prefer not to see primary education opening up fully until the summer.

“The practical consequences must therefore be carefully considered and discussed”, says chairman Jan de Vries. “Eg, Wash hands with 30 children six times a day. How much can you ask from the teaching staff?”

Keeping a distance of one and a half meters between students in secondary schools is also quite a job, De Vries fears. “Nobody should be asked to do the impossible.”
