COVID-19 confirmed school cases

Our Health Protection team work with schools that have confirmed cases of coronavirus. Schools will take action to limit the potential spread of the virus, with some pupils and staff self-isolating as a precaution where necessary.

For further information, you will need to contact the relevant school directly.

Andy Fox, consultant in public health, said: "We've had 18 schools make initial contact in the past seven days because of a pupil or staff member testing positive for coronavirus. The current rate of incidence in school age children in Lincolnshire is 161 cases per 100,000 over seven days, which is much lower than the rate of 229 cases per 100,000 for all ages.

"All schools are taking action to limit the potential spread of the virus, with some pupils and staff self-isolating as a precaution where necessary. The majority of schools remain fully open, and those affected are working really well to limit both the risk of the virus spreading and the impact on the pupils' education."
