Update COVID-19: Advice to Students and Parents/Carers 23/10/2020  

Dear students, parents and carers  

Further to my last communication to you on 16th October 2020, I would like to update you on the current COVID-19 situation in the College. 

REPORTED COVID-19 CASES: LATEST DATA 

The table below gives the most up-to-date picture of COVID-19 infections at South Devon College in all areas. 

Weekly cases: 2 (Total cases reported during the last 7 days – this gives an indication of the number of current cases) 
Total cases: 9 (A running total of positive cases reported to the College by students and staff since the first case was reported on Wednesday 7th October 2020) 

I want to continue to reassure you, again, that as a College we are doing everything possible to ensure the safety of our students and staff during this COVID-19 global pandemic.   

As promised, we will continue to issue a weekly update of the number of confirmed cases within the College. We will provide this update at 2pm on Friday afternoon each week including during College holidays.  

This week, we have received an important update jointly from the directors of Public Health for Devon and Torbay, which I would like to draw your attention to.  The letter can be found on our website using this LINK.  

Everything possible is being done to safely keep the College open for students and staff. The College remains open and, providing you and your family members remain well, coming to College and work can continue as normal.This is a team effort and we ask every single student and staff member to do everything possible to keep each other safe and well. 

Thank you very much for your ongoing support. 

Yours sincerely, 

Laurence Frewin 

Principal and CEO 
South Devon College
