Schools and GP surgeries have closed and a group of Liverpool fans have been placed into isolation as Coronavirus fears continue to grow.

The precautions come after the Italian government placed 12 towns in the north of the country into lockdown to contain the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

A number of Merseyside schools have also sent staff and pupils home after half term skiing trips to the European region.

The Italian government is scrambling to control the spread of coronavirus following a recent spike in the number of cases and deaths.

Two of the most affected regions are Lombardy and Veneto in the north of the country, home to major cities including Milan and Venice.

Here are all the local places the ECHO understands have closed and are taking precautions due to the scare.

Coronavirus warning for Merseyside pupils after school trip to Italy

Some 40 students and six members of staff at Meols Cop High School in Southport recently returned from a ski trip in the area, which has been affected by the illness.

However, headteacher Ian Parry said the area in northern Italy which students and staff visited did not fall into one of the 12 identified lockdown towns.

As a precaution the Merseyside school contacted Public Health England this morning to take advice, and were travellers returning from identified areas of northern Italy should self-isolate if they display flu-like symptoms such as coughing, colds and high temperature.

The school has asked parents to be vigilant and contact the 111 NHS helpline for additional advice if they have returned from the trip and are showing flu like symptoms.

Speaking to the ECHO, Mr Parry said: “The students and staff members did not visit the area Public Health England are concerned about and no symptoms have been brought to our attention.

“We have spoken to all our parents and we are asking them to be vigilant and aware of the symptoms.”

School sends pupils and staff home over coronavirus fears after class trip

Pupils and teachers at Cardinal Heenan Catholic High School, in West Derby , were told to leave the school as a precaution after they attended a recent ski trip in Northern Italy.

Last week, during the half term break, a number of children and staff from the school went on the trip and have now been told to stay away from the premises until they receive more information from official bodies.

An email letter sent to parents and carers on February 25, from headteacher Ms Smyth, said: “You may be aware that during half term the school visited Northern Italy on a ski trip.

“The trip did not visit any of the towns currently quarantined due to the Coronavirus .

“All staff and pupils were medically screened on entry to and from Milan airport.

“As a precautionary measure, we have sent all of these pupils and staff home whilst we seek further clarification.”

Liverpool fans in coronavirus quarantine after UEFA Champions League Atletico Madrid away trip

A group of Liverpool fans who travelled to last week’s Champions League fixture against Atletico Madrid are being advised to ‘self isolate’ after travelling home via northern Italy.

The supporters are understood to have flown back from Madrid to Manchester Airport via Milan Bergamo Airport, which is in one of the regions worst affected by the recent outbreak.

One LFC fan was advised to stay at home despite not exhibiting any symptoms of the virus as a precautionary measure.

Liverpool fans who travelled through Milan Bergamo Airport had their temperature checked and were tested for fever while at the airport.

A 28-year-old Liverpool fan who did not want to be named said: “I travelled home from Madrid to Milan Bergamo airport and when we got off the plane we were all tested for our fever and stuff which was the first sign that something was a bit weird.

“But because we had five hours until our next flight, we decided to go into the centre of Bergamo for something to eat and a few drinks.

“After we got checked into the airport we were told nothing and then a few days ago it started breaking on the news about the outbreak in northern Italy.

“Then today I was sent home. But I feel fine.

“I rang the NHS 111 number and they said to self isolate for a period of time and if you don’t have any symptoms that you will be fine to return to work.

“Personally, I feel fine like but I think it is the fear for other people I work with and though I didn’t want to go home it makes sense.

“We travelled through Bergamo on the 19th. The first date they have suggested for self isolation.”

Two schools closed over coronavirus fears as students show flu like symptoms

Pupils and staff from Cransley School in Northwich recently returned from a ski trip to Bormio in Lombardy, Italy.

Currently, towns near Lombardy are on lockdown after an outbreak of the virus infected hundreds of people.

A number of students are said to be showing flu-like symptoms following the school ski trip, reports Cheshire Live.

Meanwhile, Brine Leas Academy in Nantwich has also taken the decision to partially close today (Tuesday, February 25) after teachers and students from the sixth form returned from an Italy trip.

The school has said on Twitter that it will remain open but that the Sixth Form College will close due to ‘staff shortages’.

Headteacher of Cransley School, Richard Pollock issued a Facebook statement on the school’s page explaining that he had been advised by NHS clinical services to ensure that all pupils and staff who went on the trip remain self-isolated, regardless of whether or not they are showing symptoms of being unwell.

He wrote: “This means non-attendance tomorrow and for the remainder of the week.

“All pupils who are unwell should inform NHS 111 and insist on being tested for the Coronavirus.

“I am attending a dedicated ‘pod’ at Warrington General tomorrow myself. Pupils should not use public transport or taxis.”

Mr Pollock added: “Regardless of the current Public Health England advice (that the school should remain open to all other pupils) I have decided, in discussion with the SMT and the Chair and Vice-Chair of Governors, to completely minimise possible spread of infection and close the school for the remainder of the week.

“During this time, the school will be able to conduct a deep clean, and monitor the results of tests amongst those pupils who are currently showing flu-like symptoms.”
