At least 8 school reported with Covid-19 cases over the past few days


At least 8 schools have reported Covid-19 cases over the past few days.

Based on the reader's contribution, social media shares  and official sources such as ST and 8World, these are the 8 confirmed schools with students and staff affected. Do note that NOT all schools are having HBL as a result of this. All close contacts (students and staff) are placed on LOA. All the students affected are from Primary and Preschools. As per articles available, children of this age are less likely to be ill and many do not show symptoms. 

As information is limited from MOE, we can only base our findings on the letters presented.

If your child has taken tuition or enrichment classes in the vicinity of these schools. Do take note. Base on the last outbreak in schools, there is a chance of transmission via such classes. 

In the meantime, be responsible. If you, your child or anyone in the family has any symptoms, please see a doctor immediately. The responsibility to stop the spread starts with us. The risk is not on the children but on families of the children who are not vaccinated. 

Stay safe!
