A CHILD has been confirmed to have coronavirus at a Gwendraeth secondary school.

Wyn Evans, headteacher of Ysgol Maes y Gwendraeth, in Cefneithin, has written to parents informing them a pupil has tested positive for Covid-19.

Mr Evans said there is no requirement for pupils or staff to isolate and that the school will be open for all pupils on Monday.

He wrote: "We have been informed that an individual at our school has tested positive for Covid-19.

"We would like to reassure you that there is no immediate cause for concern and provide you with as much information as possible.

"We can confirm that no pupils or members of staff at the school have been identified as having been in close contact with the individual concerned."

He said the school is working closely with Carmarthenshire County Council and NHS Wales Test, Trace, Protect (TTP), and will be following all the advice and guidance given.

The letter added: "If your child becomes unwell outside of school hours, with or without any of the Covid-19 symptoms or needs to self-isolate, please report this to us by calling Delta Wellbeing on 0300 333 2222 or by emailing TTP@deltawellbeing.org.uk who will notify the school on your behalf.

"During school hours and for all other health-related issues please inform your school directly."
