A student from Avondale College in West Auckland has tested positive for Covid-19.
The student and their family are in good health and close contacts of the student have already been contacted, according to a letter from the principal on the school's website.
Principal Lyndy Watkinson said the school was contacted by the Ministry of Education and Auckland Regional Public Health yesterday afternoon and told of the positive Covid-19 case.
"Others in our school community are considered casual contacts and more information about this is in the attached letter from Auckland Regional Public Health Service," the letter said.
