A number of students at the Isle of Wight College have been told to self isolate following a positive COVID-19 case within the college community.
An email has been sent out tonight (Thursday) confirming the news, stating that a member of the college community has tested positive for the virus.
The Isle of Wight College says it is working closely with the relevant public health bodies to monitor and contain the situation.
A ‘small number’ of individuals who have been in close, prolonged contact with the person who has tested positive have been informed. They will now stay at home for 14 days.
It is unknown if the positive test has been confirmed in a teacher or student.
The college remains open as normal and students should continue to attend if they feel well.
