PUPILS at a secondary school have been asked to isolate after one student tested positive for Covid-19.

In a letter sent to parents last week, Cams Hill School in Fareham informed them there had been a confirmed coronavirus case within Year 9.

In the letter from the headteacher, seen by the Daily Echo, children who had been in close contact with the pupil were asked to isolate for 10 days.

The case was identified last Thursday and those who are isolating will be able to return to school from July 5 as long as they don't show any symptoms, the letter added.

Further details were given about remote learning to support the students.

Speaking to the Echo, the a spokesperson for the school said a second letter was sent to parents on Friday to update, informing them that half the year group could return to school.

The school declined to comment further.
