Phnom Penh’s Canadian International School on Koh Pich has been closed by the Ministry of Health after a Canadian staff member tested positive for COVID-19.

The member of staff, who is reported to be a 49 year old man, developed COVID-19 symptoms after returning from a trip to Thailand earlier this month. He is now reported to be in isolation in the Khmer-Soviet Friendship Hospital.

According to the CIS website  :

A CIS staff member was tested positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19) on Friday, March 13. This staff member was likely infected when he recently travelled to Thailand. He has not been within any CIS campus since March 6th. He is being taken care of by the Cambodian health staff and his health has improved.

Following the advice of the Ministry of Health, the CIS staff member has been isolated in quarantine for 14 days. He is being tested daily until his test results come back negative.
