One pupil infected with Covid-19 – school class in quarantine
A pupil at Hadsel upper secondary school (videregående skole), Stokmarknes campus, has testet positive for Covid-19. The pupil is a close contact of one of the two persons testing positive in Hadsel last week.
As a consequence, the pupil’s class and some members of the pupil council will be in quarantine until 5th of February. Two teachers are also quarantined.
All the people in quarantine will be contacted for testing as soon as possible.
– The risk of the pupil being infectious at school is low. However, the consequences of an outbreak in a school class will be so severe that we have deemed it necessary to place the whole class in quarantine, says chief municipal physician, Ingebjørn Bleidvin.
The student has not had any symptoms of infection and has been in quarantine since 27th of January.
– This is yet another reminder of the importance of following the measures to help prevent the spread of infection. Such as maintaining good had hygiene, reduce social contact and keep at least a meter distance from other people, says Bleidvin.
No general measures will be introduced as of now.
– There is no basis for applying other measures now. The remaining close contacts from last week have tested negative twice and have no symptoms. But we keep a close eye on the situation, says Bleidvin.
