Number of pupils and staff self-isolating in Cambridgeshire revealed in new weekly update on coronavirus in county's schools
Over 440 Cambridgeshire school pupils are currently self-isolating as a result of covid-19.
The figures were released today (Tuesday) in a briefing from Cambridgeshire County Council, which explained the schools team has been busy as a result of a "substantial" number of enquiries regarding outbreaks of the coronavirus in classrooms across the area.
Today's announcement is the first of what is now planned to be a weekly update giving an overview of the situation in schools. The aim is to help manage the volume of requests.
