Chillicothe – One High school student has been sent home after testing positive for Covid-19.

According to Chillicothe High school the student was sent home and into quarantine for at least 14 days.

A statement from the high school here:

“The Chillicothe City Schools have been firmly focused on assuring health and safety as we’ve reopened our schools. A high school student recently tested positive for COVID-19, and as soon as we were made aware of the positive test, the student was immediately sent home to quarantine. All students and staff who came in contact with the ill student were quickly notified.
“We’ve been working with the Ross County Health District to notify parents of students potentially exposed as well as our staff. Fortunately, due to the nature of the exposure, proper social distancing and mask-wearing, public health officials have determined that no other students or staff are required to quarantine.
“We will continue to work closely with the local health department to ensure our students and staff remain healthy and safe. We are proud that our school community has been vigilant with social distancing and mask-wearing with the return to in-person learning this week, and we remain confident in the protocols and policies we have set in place to continue keeping our students and faculty safe while in our care.”
