Two IT teachers have tested positive for COVID-19, while an art teacher has preliminarily tested positive.   “For this outbreak, the first case is a customer of URSUS Fitness. He had attended the fitness centre and was subsequently confirmed to be a case.   “The other two cases are colleagues of the index case in this school.   “The second case is also an IT teacher who shared the same classroom with the index case and they had very close contact.   “The third case is an art teacher who had contact with the second case inside the IT room for about 10 minutes, so we believe that the transmission is person-to-person, and it occurred inside the IT room.”   The centre has arranged for 35 students and six teaching assistants who used the IT room to be sent to quarantine centres.   For information and health advice on COVID-19, visit the Government's dedicated webpage.
