“Prince Edward School boarders were taken for Covid-19 testing at Parirenyatwa taking advantage of the free PCR testing being availed by the Higher Life Foundation,” he said.
“This was done as a precaution measure unfortunately, the first batch of results has indicated that seven 6 upper boarders tested positive for Covid-19.
“The rest of the results are still to come in but all 256 boarders were tested with the last test done on Wednesday 24 March 2021.”
