Covid-19: Avondale College pupils told to stay home after student tests positive [Video]


Covid-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins announces year 11, 12 and 13 students in alert level 3 areas will be allowed back at school from Tuesday October 26.

Senior students at an Auckland high school have been asked to study from home tomorrow after a student tested positive for Covid-19.

In an email sent to parents and caregivers, and posted on the school website on Sunday evening, Avondale College principal Lyndy Watkinson said the student was at school while infectious, on Tuesday and Wednesday.

As it had been more than 72 hours since the confirmed case had been at school there was no requirement for the school to close, Watkinson said in the email.
