All have tested negative twice, and most will return to school next week.
Good news regarding the five COVID-19 cases found in Ministry of Education (MOE) schools last week – all have recovered.
The positive news was announced by Education Minister Ong Ye Kung on Facebook on Jun 11.
He said: “Yesterday (Jun 10), we were happy to learn that all have recovered, tested negative twice, and can be discharged from hospital.”
As part of the Ministry of Health’s (MOH) extended surveillance testing, four students and one non-teaching staff member had tested positive for COVID-19 last Sunday (Jun 7).
Most of the five will be returning to school next week. One student already started joining his classmates for online lessons.
The education minister added: “The five schools have been keeping in close contact with affected students and staff to offer support. During this period, students who have been placed on leave of absence (LOA) or home quarantine order (HQO) may be worried about catching up on their studies, but rest assured that the schools will support you with online lessons and consultations.
“We are learning from each episode, and schools, students and parents must all continue to stay vigilant and socially responsible as we learn to live with COVID-19.”
