A SCHOOL in Andalucia has been forced to close after one of its staff tested positive for COVID-19.
The municipal nursery of Benacazon in Sevilla shut its doors today after the principal received a positive coronavirus diagnosis.
All staff had been tested just days before the school reopened and all had tested negative.
The tests were a rapid diagnostic test and not the more reliable PCR.
The director of the school will undergo a second PCR test to confirm his positive result.
All 60 children have been placed in isolation before it is decided whether or not they will also have to undergo a PCR test.
It comes as Pedro Sanchez has told the autonomous communities today that they will need permission from Madrid if they decide they want to shut down schools.
