The Paphos School board has reported to police the case of a school employee who failed to alert colleagues that she had come into contact with a Covid-19 case until she herself tested positive, the Cyprus News Agency reports
Board chairman Michalis Charalambousc said the school, which he did not not name, has been completely vacated and disinfected.
All employees as well as teaching staff who had come into contact with the individual had been notified to undergo the test.
Charalambous said he had been notified by the school’s management that an employee had tested positive for coornavirus.
He said the individual in question had come into contact with a confirmed case but had continued to go to work. She then called 1420 and was told to take the test, which she did on March 28. Two days later she was notified that she had tested positive.
Charalambous said he had reported the case to police.
The employee had not told anyone that she had come into contact with a confirmed case, and only informed her superiors when she got the results on the afternoon of March 30. That same morning she had gone to work as normal, he added.
