Lee High School Staff Member Positive for COVID19

A staff member at Lee High School has tested positive Sunday for the COVID-19 virus.
The LENOWISCO Health District has been contacted and is in the process of conducting contact tracing. All individuals who may have been exposed will be contacted today and advised whether they need to quarantine or not. As has been previously shared, contact with someone who tests positive does not warrant quarantine unless the Health Department advises that it does. The general guide is that exposure is defined as being within 6 feet of an infected individual for at least 15 minutes within 48 hours from the onset of symptoms or a positive test.
The Health Department or LCPS staff will be making contact with any students and their families who may have been exposed. If families have questions, then please contact the Health Department (276-346-2011).
Lee High staff did routine and deep cleaning of the building after school on Friday. Earlier this afternoon, staff went to the school and deep cleaned the areas again that this individual was in on Friday. If any families or students want to change from in-person to remote learning, then please contact your school.
Lee County Public Schools will continue to work with the Health Department to provide the safest environment possible in which to educate our children while protecting overall public health. LCPS will continue to communicate to provide families with information to make decisions about their child’s education and families’ overall health.
