WISBECH ST MARY: Playgroup closed due to vomiting bug

Wisbech St Mary Playgroup was forced to shut for three days this week due to an outbreak of the Winter Vomiting Bug.

Spokesperson Sally Raven contacted the Citizen to explain staff had to close on Monday and due to the 48 hour rule, staff and children couldn’t return to work until two full days after their last bout of sickness. The Playgroup remained closed Tuesday and today (Wednesday) to deep clean the whole establishment and all its contents, as advised by the Health Protection Unit.

Said Sally: “We would like to thank all parents for their co-operation and will be re-opening on Thursday 22 November for business as usual. We hope that all other establishments do the same to try and contain this virus and stop it spreading further.”
