Suankularb Wittayalai School is back to online study this week after a student tested positive for Covid-19, the school says.

The school is reverting to online-online classes barely a week after it resumed on-site study.

The all-boy secondary school in Bangkok said on its Facebook page that in the first two weeks of the new term, which started Nov 1, the school conducted classes entirely online.

Last week the school arranged for on-site study along with continued online classes -- until it discovered a student was infected with Covid-19.

The Mathayom 6 (grade 12) student contracted the virus from his parents, according to Thanu Wongjinda, deputy secretary-general of the Office of the Basic Education Commission.

The school said the infected student was receiving treatment. His classmates have been administered an antigen test; results were negative.

Nonetheless the students were placed in quarantine for seven days, after which time they will take another antigen test.

Teachers who came into contact with the student were now in home isolation and have been teaching remotely .

Mr Thanu said that for the peace of mind of parents and other students, the school will limit study to online classes from today to Friday.

In the meantime, school premises will be cleaned.
