Part of a school has re-opened this morning after a deep clean.
The school’s upper site in Ordnance Street, which houses Year 9-13 pupils, reopened this morning.
The lower site in Maidstone Road will remain closed until Monday “due to staffing levels”.
The affected youngster is linked to a second person in Medway to have the illness.
Both are connected to Kent’s original patient – a worker at Maidstone Studios who also has a link to Faversham.
This person is believed to have recently returned from a trip to Italy before falling ill.
It is not known how long the pupil was at the school for before testing positive, but the Messenger understands it wasn’t for an extended period and the risk to other children was minimal.
Pupils arrived as normal this morning, and were greeted at the gates by some staff.
On Monday morning, workers from the council’s contractor Medway Norse were spotted arriving at the school to begin the cleaning of all surfaces.
The work is said to be purely precaution as it is likely the virus can only survive outside the body for hours rather than days.
A GP surgery at a shopping centre also closed for deep cleaning is due to re-open this afternoon.
The DMC clinic inside the Boots store in the Pentagon in Chatham was evacuated and cordoned off on Monday morning.
This was after a patient reportedly arrived displaying symptoms of coronavirus.
It is not known at this stage what happened to this person.
The surgery is based within the Boots store, which saw part of its rear area cordoned off temporarily.
