A small number of pupils are self-isolating after a COVID-19 case was confirmed at a primary school in Hereford.

A parent of a child at St Martin’s School in Hereford told us that parents have received a phone call informing them that a staff member has tested positive for the virus and therefore the year a small number of pupils will now need to self-isolate at home.

The pupils affected will be able to return to the school on the 9th March.

The news comes after a staff member tested positive for the virus at Marlbrook Primary School in Hereford last week.
