The cantonal doctor’s office has decided to quarantine three classes from the College of Platanes in Biel after students tested positive, i.e. 53 people in all. The quarantine is expected to last until September 24 or 25.
Two 11th grade classes each have two students who test positive and one student is also infected in another 11th grade, the canton of Bern said on Wednesday. A college faculty member has also tested positive, but since he wore a mask during class, the students will not go into quarantine.
