A first-year child at the Ecole Stella nursery school tested positive for Covid-19 on Monday 18 January, following intra-family contamination. The child has been removed from school in line with the procedure recommended by the Monegasque health authorities.
As PCR tests are not carried out on nursery school pupils, and as these pupils are not required to wear masks due to their young age, the Prince’s Government has decided, as a precautionary measure, that all pupils in the class concerned must remain absent from school from Tuesday 19/01/2021 until Sunday 24/01/2021 inclusive.
On Tuesday 19 January another pupil, a second-year child (Petite Section) of the school also tested positive for Covid-19. The Prince’s Government has decided, as a precautionary measure, that all pupils in the class concerned must remain absent too from school from Wednesday 20/01/2021 until Monday 25/01/2021 inclusive.
The parents of the pupils concerned have been directly informed by the school management.
School staff who have been in contact with the pupils who tested positive for Covid-19 will be given a PCR test, in accordance with the health protocol.
The Ecole Stella school continues to welcome pupils from other classes, in compliance with the health measures in force.
