An Auckland secondary school is to close for three days because a staff member has tested positive for Covid-19.
And the primary school next door is closing as a precaution.
Marist College in Mt Albert has been contacting parents this evening to let them know the school will be closed for a deep clean for the next three days.
The school website says it has 800 students.
Contacts of the staff member were being followed up by the Auckland Regional Public Health service and asked to self isolate, an email from the college said.
The staff member was in self isolation within their household.
