"You can not send your child to school", he said.

The school found out about the positive test Monday after the student already had attended school.

Head teachers have written to the prime minister about their fears of further delays as virus cases rise.

The data will include case numbers in individual public school buildings. The board says when a class is closed, the students must return home and self-isolate for 14 days. Bullock also noted that as of Wednesday there had been around 50 K-12 students that have tested positive for the virus during the school year out of the 147,000 students in the state.

The ASCL said it has received 264 responses from schools and colleges in recent days where leaders have said they have symptomatic staff and/or pupils who were struggling to access tests.

Mr Williamson did not respond to that question but said schools were in a unique position to be able to have testing kits on site.

A mobile testing unit is also being added which can be sent to schools if an outbreak occurs.Those in charge continue to look for opportunities to open more sites, all depending on staffing.


Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham said around 110 schools in the area had reported coronavirus cases. "The school department did everything they were supposed to do".

"These children have been effectively hit by a triple-whammy of long-term disadvantage, school closures and now testing chaos".

For the last two months Arntzen and Bullock have been publicly trading verbal jabs over the reopening of schools during COVID and the role of the Governor's office.

"Without urgent steps from the government to address these issues, it will be the most vulnerable children who will pay the highest price".

Dr Patrick Roach, general secretary of the NASUWT teaching union, has called on the Government to prioritise the education sector for the allocation of tests in light of the challenges.

He said: "Areas where additional local restrictions have been introduced, due to the increase in the R (reproduction) number, are now unable to cope with demand for tests".

About 30 students are now under a two-week quarantine to monitor for potential symptoms of Covid-19, he said. "Employers are struggling to deal with the implications and consequences".
