Possible Covid case at Diego Martin school

There are reports of a possible Covid19 case at the Diego Martin North Secondary School.

Reports began circulating on Monday that a teacher at the school displayed symptoms of the virus and was ordered to self-quarantine at home.

The Ministry of Education and the Trinidad and Tobago Unified Teachers Association (TTUTA) are now both investigating these claims.

Minister Dr Nyan Gadsby-Dolly stated that her ministry had been advised of the situation.
But, in a brief Newsday interview, she said “At this time, no school closure has been recommended, as the teacher does not have a positive Covid19 test, and her last interaction with 11 students was under strict safety protocols.”
