Wasatch County High School Student Reportedly Tests Positive For COVID-19
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – A student in the Wasatch County School District has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19.
Wasatch County Health Department notified the district, and an investigation is underway “to determine the extent of the student’s contact with other students and staff,” according to an email.
Chris Smoot, the public information officer for Wasatch County Health Department, said a case is indeed being investigated, and state epidemiologist Angela Dunn confirmed the case during the Utah Department of Health daily press briefing Monday
Students weren’t in classes Monday due to a statewide soft closure of public schools. However, some teachers and staff were at Wasatch High, according to the email.
“In an abundance of caution, we have dismissed all teachers and staff from Wasatch High School and all other school buildings,” according to the email. “Teachers will continue to work on our distance learning plan and will continue to be in touch while working remotely.”
District officials noted that lunches will still be available to students for pick-up only at each location from 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Deliveries are being made to Todd Hollow and Wallsburg Town Hall. Students are asked to pick up the lunch and leave the school grounds. They should not stay at the school to eat, the email stated.
The UDOH on Monday updated the state’s official confirmed COVID-19 cases to a total of 39. Twenty-nine of the patients are Utah residents, and 10 of the patients are non-Utah residents visiting the state.
