The school of the children of the Pietermaritzburg man diagnosed with coronavirus has been shut down for Friday.
In a statement, the Cowan House Preparatory School said it was in constant communication with experts from the National Institute of Communicable Diseases (NICD).
The school said the NICD advised that it was unnecessary to close the school for Friday, but due to lack of clarity and uncertainty at this point, all extra-curricular activities scheduled for the weekend would also be cancelled.
Health Minister Zweli Mkhize is expected to visit the school in the afternoon and share more details on the country’s first case of the new virus.
