Dudley Council has confirmed Dormston School has a positive Covid-19 case.

Councillor Ruth Buttery, cabinet member for children and young people, said: “Dudley Council is working closely with all education providers in the borough to keep people safe during the pandemic.

“Due to patient confidentiality, we cannot comment on individual cases but parents and carers can be assured their childcare provider, school, or college will contact them should they need to take any action.

More Covid-19 coverage:

“When a case is confirmed that relates to an education setting they are reported to the Department for Education, which works with the setting to ensure appropriate and proportionate measures are taken.

“We are continuing to do all we can to keep children and young people safely back in education where they belong and a part of this work is also ensuring children do not unnecessarily miss important time at childcare, school or college.

“People can continue to help reduce the risk of transmission of the virus by following government guidance, including social distancing and practising good hand hygiene. It is vital that anyone who is symptomatic self-isolates and seeks a test.”
