A THIRD case of coronavirus at Ysgol Dyffryn Aman has been reported.

The headteacher at the Ammanford secondary school has confirmed that an individual at the school has tested positive for Covid-19.

The case, which was confirmed to parents in a letter on Monday, October 12, came a week after a second case was announced and almost two weeks after the first case on September 30.

Headteacher Nerys Nicholas sent a letter to parents on Monday afternoon, informing them of the third case - and said, "no pupils nor members of staff at the school have been identified as having been in close contact with the individual".

Adding: "Please be assured we have robust procedures in place and the Test, Trace Protect (TTP) process is being followed."

Last week, on October 6, pupils in year 13 were told to stay at home after a child tested positive for Covid-19.

The students were asked to self-isolate at home until they were instructed they could go back to school.

An update from the school on Thursday, October 8, confirmed pupils who had not been contacted by TTP were able to return to school on

Friday, October 9.

The school said the "very few" pupils who have been noted as a close contact have been contacted by TTP and will need to self-isolate for 14 days.
