School issues ‘reminder’ after birthday party sparks COVID-19 outbreak
A birthday party in breach of COVID-19 restrictions has sparked a coronavirus outbreak in Melbourne’s north west.
It’s prompted one school to issue a reminder to parents about following the rules.
Neil Mitchell was sent a copy of the letter, sent to parents of students at St Columba’s College in Essendon.
“A number of people” at the 16th birthday party have since tested positive to COVID-19.
One of the people infected at the party is now said to be receiving intensive care in hospital.
3AW understands the parent who hosted the party is not a parent of a student at St Columba’s.
