A primary school headteacher has died days after testing positive for coronavirus.
Wendy Jacobs, who worked at Roose Primary School in Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, was diagnosed with the disease earlier this week.
She passed away on Sunday after being cared for in the intensive care unit of Furness General Hospital.
It is understood Mrs Jacobs had no underlying health conditions.
In a statement to parents, Fred Chatfield, the school's chair of governors, said: "This is devastating news for our school and nursery community and all our thoughts and sympathies are with her family.
"We are all in shock, and given these exceptional circumstances we have taken the decision to close the school and nursery fully tomorrow to all pupils, including those of essential workers."
"This is a huge loss to our school, nursery and our community and I will be in touch as soon as possible to explain how we will celebrate Mrs Jacob's life and contribution."
Roose Primary remained closed to all of its 190 pupils on Monday, including children of "essential workers" such as NHS staff and police officers.
It comes as school leaders demand clarification on what safety measures teachers should adopt while in school with children who the government said are still able to attend.
Schools need to know if they should be providing masks and protective equipment, or distancing children in class, the National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT) warned.
Paul Whiteman, NAHT General Secretary, said: "What schools desperately need now is clear guidance on how to keep the pupils and staff that continue to attend school safe.
"School leaders are crying out for sight of the expert medical evidence on safe levels of attendance and density, and want practical advice on protective steps they should be taking in schools."
