THREE more schools across the Winchester district have reported positive cases of coronavirus over the past week.

Hampshire County Council publish a full list of schools in the area which have reported positive coronavirus cases.

Since Sunday, the authority has registered three more schools in the district which have at least one individual who has contracted Covid-19. It brings the total number of schools in the district to have cases to nine.

Yesterday (Wednesday) Weeke Primary School and The Westgate School told the county council that it each had a positive case.

The council also said that on Sunday Bishop’s Waltham Junior School registered at least one case of coronavirus.

Around 135 schools in Hampshire, excluding Southampton and Portsmouth schools, currently have cases of the virus. The list does not report Independent schools.

Although a school can record a positive case this does not mean the infected person was in school at the time.
