St John Fisher Catholic Comprehensive School, Chatham, has been temporarily closed after a pupil was confirmed to have contracted Corona virus.
Medway Norse have been contracted to deep clean the school so that it may reopen on Wednesday.
Cllr Vince Maple, Leader of Medway Labour & Co-operative Group said, ‘We’ve been informed of cases of Corona virus locally, which have been linked to the other confirmed cases in Kent. As ward councillors, myself and my colleagues have reached out to St John Fisher School to ensure they are getting the support they need at this difficult time. It’s reassuring that the school is doing everything within their powers to keep pupils and their families safe.
‘Medway Council is following Public Health England advice, working with health colleagues to support the school, and has sent advice to council staff aimed at stopping the spread of the virus and ensuring the people of Medway are protected.’
