Covid case confirmed at St Mary’s RC Catholic Primary School

St Mary’s Catholic Primary School in Chiswick has had its first case of Covid-19 confirmed.

Parents were informed by email just after 9.30pm on Wednesday 14 October. The school will remain closed until Monday while staff carry out a deep clean of the premises. Classes will get their homework posted on the school’s website for Thursday and Friday.

“The school has been preparing for this since day one” a parent told The Chiswick Calendar. “The head teacher and governors seem to be really on top of it”.

The news came as Mayor of London Sadiq Khan told Sky News that tougher restrictions were now “inevitable” in London “in the next few days”.

“All the indicators I have, hospital admissions, ICU occupancy, the numbers of older people with cases, the prevalence of the disease, the positivity are all going the wrong direction” he said.
