Coronavirus closes Somerset schools

Coronavirus closes Somerset schools

Mar 19, 2020

Schools in South Somerset, including Yeovil College, will shut on Friday, March 20th and until further notice in order to curb the spread of Coronavirus.

All exams scheduled for May and June will not take place.

Nurseries have also been urged to close.

Other measures to fight COVID-19 include:

Avoiding pubs, clubs and restaurants
Staying at home whenever possible and not having social contact with people if you can help it
Everyone should work from home if they are able to
The over 70's - and at-risk groups of vulnerable people with underlying health conditions - should stay at home, avoiding going out even for essentials. Going out for exercise, but staying away from people, is ok, however
Whole households should now self-isolate for 14 days if anyone in the house had symptoms - a continuous cough or fever
Mass gatherings of more than 500 people will no longer be supported by the emergency services, and the government advises against them for now
