TWO educational centres in Mijas and Alhaurin de la Torre have delayed opening after detecting cases of COVID-19.
The affected schools are Santa Ana, a primary school in Alhaurin de la Torre in the La Alqueria district and Los Claveles nursery school in Cala de Mijas.
The nursery school Los Claveles informed parents through an official announcement that all the teachers were under quarantine.
“A case/outbreak of COVID-19 has been confirmed in the centre and, therefore, all the staff of the centre are under quarantine by order of the Health Department,” it read.
The nursery school, for three to six year olds, will remain closed until the appropriate health conditions are met.
Meanwhile, the opening of the Santa Ana school in Alhaurin de la Torre, which has students from three years to the sixth year of primary school, has also had to be postponed after teachers tested positive through PCR.
According to the Regional Minister for Education, Javier Imbroda, in the serology tests that have been carried out on teachers in Andalucia, results show that only 0.1% have tested positive for COVID-19.
The news follows a string of other COVID-19 cases detected at schools across Spain leading to the subsequent quarantine of dozens of students and teachers.
