Emerging Covid-19 cases prompt Consell to keep sailing school closed

The Consell de Formentera reports that the Escola de Vela will remain closed after an announcement from the Eivissa-Formentera Health Department’s Centre for Covid-19 Case Coordination (CCCC) that three students and an instructor at the sailing school had tested positive for Covid-19 after contact with a classmate positively-identified for the disease last week.

The Consell de Formentera coordinated with the CCCC to implement prevention protocol immediately after the infected student’s family reached out to the Escola de Vela on 15 August. Sailing school staff are updating families on the situation today and advising them that activities at the centre will be suspended until further notice.

The Eivissa-Formentera Health Department announced today it would also screen each of the approximately eighty students enrolled at the school.

Summer school group stays home
As a preventive measure amid concern over one suspected case, a cohort of 11 children and 3 instructors at the Sant Francesc Escola d’Estiu are being asked to stay home.

Crews are intensifying the daily sanitising efforts mandated by public health directives.

The potential Covid-19 positive went into self-isolation on Monday after learning of contact with individuals who had contracted the disease.

Seniors’ programming at Casa de Poble cancelled
In another measure aimed at stemming spread of the disease, the Consell has elected to suspend recreational activities under way in recent weeks at the Casa del Poble in La Mola.
