Comely Park Primary School head teacher Laura McLintock stated positive coronavirus tests had led some pupils at the Cow Wynd school having to self isolate until next week.

Mrs McLintock said: “We can confirm one P3 class and one nursery bubble of children are isolating until Monday, March 8 and two P1 classes are in isolation until Thursday, March 4.”

The news follows on from similar situations at other Falkirk Council area schools, including Bowhouse Primary, which had an entire primary two class forced to self isolate after a pupil tested positive for coronavirus.
