Students have returned to a school which closed earlier this month after two people connected to the school contracted coronavirus.
St Johns Fisher Catholic School in Kent was fully reopened today after undergoing a ‘deep clean’ last week.
A year 8 pupil was diagnosed with COVID-19 leading to both sites in Chatham being closed.
The school’s upper site, in Ordnance Street, which houses year 9-13 pupils, reopened on Wednesday, March 11.
Its lower site in nearby Maidstone Road, for Years 7 and 8 opened its doors again this morning.
Both are connected to Kent’s original patient – a worker at Maidstone Studios who also has a link to Faversham.
This person is believed to have recently returned from a trip to Italy before falling ill.
As of Sunday afternoon there are 13 cases of the virus in Kent.

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
