A second case of Coronavirus has been confirmed at Cumbria's largest secondary school.
The headteacher at Trinity School in Carlisle has confirmed that a second person within the 'school community' has tested positive for COVID-19.
In a letter to parents on Wednesday 11 March, Jo Hawkin said that Public Health England PHE will be investigating the new case, to determine whether there are other possible sources.
Ms Hawkin also reiterated the importance of protecting the new patient's privacy at this early stage.
Headteacher Hawkin said the school will remain open, but understands that concern around the virus is causing anxiety.
The school is giving parents the option to keep their children at home, should they wish to, given the extenuating circumstances, but reiterated that they are following advice from Public Health England.
Ms Hawkin says the move to keep the school open is to limit the disruption to pupils with upcoming exams, allowing them to continue their studies.
An orthodontist surgery in Carlisle say they will not see any patients who attend Trinity School for at least 14 days.
Smileville Orthodontist released a statement on Facebook: "We apologise for any inconvenience caused and the decision has not been taken lightly but we must put the welfare of our staff and patients first.
"We are closely monitoring the situation and any further outbreaks will also be dealt with in the same way.
"If you are affected by this in any way please contact the practice to rearrange any appointments."
As of Wednesday 11 March, there were 10 confirmed cases of Coronavirus in the ITV Border region, seven in Cumbria and two in the Scottish Borders.
