The First Case of Coronavirus Detected in the North Led to the Closure of the Regional Center for Circus Arts in Lomme

The first case of coronavirus was detected in northern France last week and led to the closure of the Regional Center for Circus Arts in Lomme. The young woman studies at the Regional Center for Circus Arts (CRAC). She attended class on Monday, but remained for just a half an hour before being instructed by the school staff to return home, according to the mayor of the town, Roger Vicot. The student from Lomme is in her twenties, and was infected during a stay in Italy. She was hospitalized since Tuesday evening at the Lille University Hospital.

The Regional Health Agency (ARS) tracked the people with whom the student was in contact, and according to Roger Vicot, the ARS considers that “the risk is today marginal, all the more that she has very weak symptoms. Overall, the situation is reassuring. ”

CRAC was closed all weekend as a result. As soon as the student was informed of the contamination, the Regional Center for Circus Arts closed its doors. “Initially, we planned to close it for a fortnight, but on the advice of the Regional Health Agency, the CRAC will reopen on Monday.” said Roger Vicot.
