Following the incident at Collège Charles III on Wednesday, February 7, which led to the evacuation of the building and the hospitalisation of seven people after a chemical spill, the authorities have closed the school until Monday, February 12.

On Thursday, February 8, the Government said that all toxicity readings carried out several times since the spillage of chlorine have turned out to be negative.

However, the Government decided, as a precaution, to carry out a series of additional tests by an approved and independent organisation with a return to normal planned for Monday morning.
