Schools were told to keep pupils in class or year-sized 'bubbles'. This allows schools to easily identify those who may need to self-isolate if someone within the bubble tests positive for the virus. Since schools reopened in Leeds, a number of "bubbles" have been collapsed due to positive coronavirus cases. These are the 11 Leeds primary schools that have been affected as as of Thursday, October 7:
