The Coast has endured its first COVID scare in more than a month after NSW Health cleared the possible case being investigated at a local Green Point high school.
On July 3 NSW Health confirmed it was investigating a suspected case of the virus after a Green Point Christian College student with symptoms presented for testing.
As a result the school was closed, and the college community was advised that further testing was underway.
College Principal, Phillip Nash, delivered the good news that the student had returned a negative result later that day.
“We have received further information from NSW Health that the student at our school does not currently have a COVID-19 infection and is not infectious.
“NSW Health has advised that no further action is required by the school, but as always, they encourage anyone who develops symptoms to be tested,” Nash said.
Despite the incident being the first COVID scare at a local school since the confirmed case at Kincumber High School back in April, it is a timely reminder to all residents not to take the Coast’s COVID-free status for granted.
