COVID patient visited primary school

 

A confirmed COVID case was present at a Logan primary school at the weekend, the principal has revealed, prompting a thorough cleaning before staff and students could use the area.

In a letter sent to school parents seen by The Courier-Mail, Greenbank State School principal Jeff Jones confirmed that a person with COVID used the school hall on Sunday in connection with an external event.

"Staff and students from the school were not present (on Sunday)," Mr Jones said.

"Our school has been taking all appropriate precautions regarding health and hygiene and we will continue to do so.

"We carefully clean all locations hired by external groups after their event.

"Accordingly, the hall was thoroughly cleaned on early Monday morning before any use by students and staff.

"The Metro South Public Health Unit has assessed the risks to the school community and it is safe for students to attend the school."

Mr Jones urged anyone with symptoms or who were feeling unwell to seek a COVID test.

It comes as three women at the centre of southeast Queensland's latest virus outbreak are charged by detectives.

Police allege Olivia Winnie Muranga, Diana Lasu and one unnamed woman, deliberately provided false information on their Queensland border declarations to gain access back into Queensland after travelling to Victoria.
