A Maghull High School had to send two whole year groups home within two days after positive coronavirus tests.
All grade 11 students were asked to isolate themselves.
In a statement posted on the school’s website, it said, “We were informed of a confirmed case of COVID 19 in our Year 11 cohort. In accordance with the advice of Public Health England, we are obliged to inform you that Year 11 students must stay home and isolate themselves until Monday 19 October. For more information, please contact the school management in the latest update.
Both groups have been sent home from Deyes High School and have been instructed to stay home and isolate themselves until Monday 19 October.
This comes just one day after the school at Deyes Lane confirmed that the entire 9th grade class should not attend school on Monday after a student tested positive for corona virus.
ECHO has asked the school for further information.
“The arrangements for all ninth grade students will remain in place. These students should also stay at home and isolate themselves until Monday, October 19.
“The arrangements for all 12th grade students will also remain in place. These students are also to stay home and isolate themselves until Thursday, October 15, 2020.
The Central District of Liverpool now has about three times as many confirmed cases as any other part of the city.
Class groups have been sent home as positive cases continue to increase in Merseyside.
The latest data show that 323 new infections were recorded in the central urban area between September 26 and October 2.
This means that 13% of the city’s 2,426 cases in this 7-day period occurred in this single ward among the 30 wards across the city.
These figures have contributed significantly to the soaring coronavirus rate in Liverpool, which has now reached a worrying 487.1 cases per 100,000 people.
