As many people in the town will know by now, there had been a single case of a Year 7 pupil at Ludlow School testing positive for Covid-19. This was always going to happen. It will undoubtedly happen again. Yesterday, the way the report of a positive test was dealt with at Ludlow School was exemplary. As soon as the positive test was confirmed, Year 7 was sent home. That decision was difficult for the students. It was difficult for their parents. But it was the right thing to do as we fight the pandemic locally and across the world. Below is yesterday’s press release from Shropshire Council, Ludlow CE School and Ludlow unitary councillors.
