Suspected ‘norovirus’ bug hits Penicuik school

PARENTS were told to stay away from a school’s nativity play this week after a stomach virus outbreak.

The suspected norovirus bug among pupils at Mauricewood Primary School in Penicuik prompted Midlothian Council to restrict access to the building at Greenlaw Mains.

Only pupils and staff were able to take part and watch performances of the nativity for infants and for P3-7 on Tuesday.
