A school in Slovakia will close its doors for two days due to a suspected case of the coronavirus. It is the first coronavirus-related school closure in Slovakia
The decision comes after one of the students reportedly met a COVID-19-infected person abroad. Thus, a vocational secondary school on Fajnorovo nábrežie in Bratislava will remain closed for at least two days, when results should either confirm or dismiss the suspicion.
Based on the results, a regional chief medical officer and the Bratislava Self-governing Region (BSK) will coordinate their further steps. BSK has already recommended schools to reconsider the participation of students and teachers in mass gatherings such as school trips.
The virus has not been confirmed at the school, Lucia Forman, spokesperson for the Bratislava Self-Governing Region, stated on March 6.
