PUPILS at a school in Blaina are now self-isolating following two separate confirmed cases of coronavirus.

Parents of affected pupils at Ystruth Primary School received emails yesterday, advising them their children would need to isolate.

A total of 33 pupils will be away from the school for a 14-day period - from September 18 - as a result.


The first case is reported to have come from the Robins Resource Base - confirmed on September 19 - with the second, more recent, case confirmed yesterday (September 20) in the mixed Reception/Year 1 class.

Students will have to isolate for 14 days from last contact with the group.
