Parents have been told to take their kids home from a popular school in Sydney’s east where a Year 7 pupil has contracted the coronavirus.
Waverley College in Sydney’s east texted parents this morning after a case was confirmed overnight and pictures show police escorting children from the school today.
“Urgent advice: a member of the Senior Campus has tested positive for COVID-19 and is in isolation,” the text read. “As a precaution, we ask that you collect your son immediately.”
It comes just one day after students across the state returned to classrooms full-time.
Despite the scare, there’s good news today as more than 6500 people have recovered from the deadly virus, meaning there is just 484 currently infected. We haven’t seen the numbers this low since March 17.
