NCEA Duke’s School Coronavirus Update 2/3/20
Following a thorough risk assessment process and in full consultation with Public Health England, staff and students who took part in the half-term trip to Italy trip have now returned to school. The trip was to Florence, which remains outside the areas of Italy classified by the government as being at risk. All of our staff or students who took part in the trip are fit and well and therefore Public Health England have advised that there is no reason why they should not be in school.
We will continue to follow all advice from Public Health England and NHS regarding coronavirus https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
I would like to reiterate that currently there is no evidence of any increased risk of coronavirus within our school community.
