LUDINGTON — A Ludington police officer has tested positive for COVID-19, said City Manager Mitchell Foster in a press release Tuesday Oct. 27, and city officials were informed over the weekend that four other city employees were in direct contact with a COVID-19 positive person.

“As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) has spread throughout our region and local area at a greater rate in the last few weeks, the City of Ludington wants to stay as transparent as possible with regards to the virus’s impact on our operations,” states Foster. “Over the weekend, we were notified of a positive test result for one of our police officers as well as we were informed that four other employees were in direct contact with a COVID-19 positive person.

“All of the impacted employees have been placed on quarantine and will be following the Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines as well as work with District #10 Health Department. The city will continue to provide ongoing services while abiding by CDC and District #10 Health Department guidelines to keep both our staff and general public as safe as we can.”
