The BVI Seventh Day Adventist School (BVISDA) has reverted to online learning instructions following a positive COVID-19 case at the educational facility.
This was confirmed by Education Minister Hon. Dr. Natalio Wheatley on Friday, September 10, and was also outlined in a letter to parents and guardians by the school’s Principal, Mr. Wade Tobin, yesterday.
According to the signed letter, which was obtained by BVI Platinum News, Mr. Tobin said notwithstanding a ‘promising start to the academic year,’ it was “unfortunate that I must inform you that one of our high school students has tested positive for COVID
-19. As a result, the school’s protocol measures have been activated in consultation with the Public Health Authorities.”
He continued: “You are hereby advised that effective Friday 10th September 2021, the institution will conduct classes virtually until further notice.”
Face to face instructions only officially started this week.
The territory has a total of 50 active, positive cases.
