Chloé Wilby is from England. She’s the mother of the boy, Mason, that got isolated outside in the cold over mild COVID symptoms and ended up getting hypothermia.
She told News & Star last week that Wigton Infant School put her son, Mason, in an “outdoor shed” after seeing that he had a runny nose and slight cough. She said the school called her to pick up the boy as soon as possible, without informing her that he was being held outside in 40-degree weather with no heating.
When she arrived, Wilby found her four-year-old with “hands red raw, eyes watering like mad, snotty nose down his face.”
“He couldn’t talk” and was “shivering like mad,” she said. “They even made him eat his lunch outside, no toys, no games, nothing.”
Wilby was instructed to call an ambulance after taking Mason to a doctor, as he had developed hypothermia

Geoff Norman, the headteacher of the progressive, pro-LGBT school, defended Wigton’s outdoor isolation policy in a statement published by the News & Star:
“The priority for everyone in Wigton Infant School has always been the wellbeing of the children, which now more than ever includes reducing the chance of infection across the school and caring for children who are ill at school,” he said. “This includes moving children who display Covid-19 symptoms to a separate space with a member of staff until they can be picked up by a parent or carer.”
“For several months we have been using our outdoor classroom for this purpose and this has worked well,” he added. Norman said that Wigton will cease using the facility, which appears to be the school’s “learning shed,” to isolate children with alleged COVID-19 symptoms.
