Corsica: 33 positive Covid cases at summer camp despite a valid health pass at the entrance

The summer camp turned into a cluster in Corsica after 30 children and three leaders tested positive for Covid-19. They were placed in solitary confinement.

A summer camp in Sagon in southern Corsica has turned into forced isolation for thirty children and three bystanders infected with Covid-19. ARS did require testing them because on Friday, July 23rd, a teenager from the colony tested positive.

Therefore, the prefecture of Corsica subsequently released the test results, clarifying that all members of this summer camp (children aged 12 to 15 and observers) “had a valid health passport upon arrival in Corsica on July 9,” AFP reports.

New tests coming soon

The organizer of the colony ensures contact with families, and other members will soon be checked again, the prefecture also said.

Covid-19 cases have skyrocketed in Corsica in recent weeks. In the neighboring department, in Upper Corse, the incidence has even exceeded the warning threshold set by the government.
