COVID-19: No additional positive cases at Collège Charles III

The results of tests conducted on the Year 7 (6ème) pupils at Collège Charles III who came into close contact with a young resident who tested positive for COVID-19 have all come back negative.

The two teachers resident in Monaco and one teacher resident in France who had contact with the pupil have also tested negative. Currently, two teachers who are resident in France and being monitored by the Office of Occupational Medicine are awaiting their results.

As a reminder, last Thursday (2 July), a young resident from the Principality who is a Year 7 pupil at Collège Charles III tested positive for COVID-19, after being infected by a family member who had returned from travelling outside Europe.

In accordance with the health protocols followed by the Monegasque authorities, to ensure that there was no transmission of COVID-19 to the pupil’s classmates and teachers, a doctor from the Department of Health Affairs offered them PCR testing. A total of five teachers and eleven classmates were tested.

Following an epidemiological survey, which revealed that the pupil had played basketball in Cap d’Ail, his teammates were also tested. All of the basketball team members living in Monaco tested negative. Those who live in France are being managed by the PACA Regional Health Agency.
