Newark Advertiser's Poll of the Week: Do you think schools should close if they present coronavirus cases?
Two schools in the Advertiser area have confirmed coronavirus cases and sent staff and pupils potentially exposed to the virus home to self-isolate.
The Robert Miles Junior School in Bingham sent its Year 5 bubble home on Monday after it found out on Sunday a staff member had tested positive. Lowe's Wong Junior School in Southwell also sent 31 of its pupils home this week.
We want to know if you, the reader, think our schools should shut if its students or staff test positive for coronavirus.
