It has been confirmed on Sunday that a school teacher at a Reading school is one of three people to have been diagnosed with coronavirus in the UK.

Willow Bank Infant School in Woodley informed parents that a member of staff had tested positive for the virus.

The head teacher, Michelle Masters wrote, “We regret to inform you that we were told today that one of our members of staff has tested positive for the Coronavirus, Covid 19.

“We understand that this will worry many of you, and can reassure you that we have taken advice from Public Health England.

“We apologise that it has taken some time to officially inform you, however we have first had to perform the necessary checks and procedures that follow such an incident, which has taken most of today.

“Please can we ask that you remain calm and follow the recommended hygiene procedures.

“The school will be shut for some days to allow for a deep clean and to ensure that the risks of infection remain low.

“We will be in contact to ensure that you are kept updated.”

On Saturday four young children were infected with coronavirus at a nursery school and their teacher became unwell with the virus.
