Calderside Pupils test Positive

With Covid in Lanarkshire’s news this week, another reminder that it’s close by came today when a Blantyre School was affected by several cases.

Calderside Academy on Calder Street, Blantyre was one of two Lanarkshire Schools where a number of pupils were sent home to self isolate. The Blantyre secondary school issued a letter to parents on Monday (26 October) to advise of the cases and that the school will remain open.

There is no evidence to suggest that there is transmission in the school, and that the risk to the wider school community is low.

NHS Lanarkshire have implemented their test and trace. Pupils in close contact with those testing positive have also been asked to self isolate.
