A NUMBER of pupils at Clydebank High are currently self-isolating at home following a positive case of coronavirus at the school.

In a letter published to parents on the school website on Thursday, September 10, the NHS said their Test and Protect team was carrying out Covid-19 contact tracing and that a risk assessment to establish a list of close contacts was carried out.

Those pupils who were identified as contacts are now self-isolating at home for 14 days, along with everyone else in their household.

The NHS said that no tests will be needed unless anyone in the household starts displaying coronavirus symptoms. 

In the letter, parents were advised: "The school will work with parents and carers to minimise the disruption to learning for those pupils who need to self-isolate.

"Robust control measures are in place at the school, and there is currently no evidence of transmission within the school itself.

"If you do not receive a further letter from Public Health then your child/ren can continue to go to school as normal."
