A Year 14 student at Enniskillen Royal Grammar School (ERGS) has tested positive for Covid-19.

In a letter to parents and guardians, ERGS principal Elizabeth Armstrong informed them of the positive test of the student.

The letter continued: "We have sought the most up to date advice from the Public Health Agency and all relevant staff and pupils in Year 14 have now been contacted individually and advised of the action to be taken in respect of self-isolation and their attendance at school. If your son/daughter is in Year 14 and has not been contacted today, they should attend school as normal tomorrow, Monday 21st September 2020. Pupils in other year groups should attend as usual.

"We have also arranged for the closure and deep clean of the relevant areas in school. All other areas will function as normal.

"I appreciate the concerns of parents, pupils and the wider school community on reading this news and wish to reassure you that every precaution has been taken. The safety of our pupils and staff is our priority and we will continue to monitor the situation carefully and keep you informed.

"If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at school."

ERGS are the second school in Fermanagh to confirm a student tested positive for the virus over the weekend following the announcement by St. Kevin's College Lisnaskea that a Year 11 student had contracted coronavirus.
