Coronavirus and Disneyland Paris TripPosted on: March 10th 2020
10th March 2020
I wanted to reassure you about the school’s recent trip to Disneyland Paris in light of the recent news that a maintenance worker at the resort has tested positive for coronavirus Covid-19.
I understand that the resort itself is staying open and Disneyland has confirmed that its employee - who worked behind the scenes on night shifts - did not come into contact with any visitors to the park.
Public Health Wales (PHW) has advised that as the affected employee at Disneyland was not in contact with visitors, there would have been no risk to pupils or staff. Therefore pupils and staff should return to school as normal.
I want to reassure you that at all times the school has followed PHW advice, both before and after the trip.
Posters will also be going up advising staff and pupils to wash their hands regularly. Hand washing, along with avoiding touching your face with your hands, is the most effective way to stop the transmission of Covid-19 and other colds and flu.
The ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’ message – which is about using tissues to cough or sneeze into – can be seen on posters around the school and is reinforced by staff.
Information on the coronavirus Covid-19 is available on the Public Health Wales website - phw.nhs.wales/coronavirus.
This site is updated daily and should be able to answer many of the questions you might have about the virus.
We will of course keep you updated on any further developments which affect the school as necessary.
