Three students and two members of staff have returned to a high school in Newmarket after testing positive for coronavirus.
Newmarket Academy confirmed the cases, which were recorded more than two weeks ago and resulted in a number of students being asked to self-isolate.
A total 39 students were asked to stay away from the school for 14-days in a bid to prevent the spread of the virus.
They have all since returned back to class.
The three students and two staff members who tested positive for Covid-19 have also headed back to school.
