A Broad Run High School staff member has checked favorable for COVID-19, Loudoun County Public Schools announced Wednesday, one week after that individual was last inside the school.
The client is currently self-isolating and the county health department will carry out any contact tracing that is required. The school didn't say who the team member might have had contact with.
But students haven't been in school buildings, and they aren't slated to return anytime soon. The discovery of the favorable case comes a day after classes went back into session through 100% virtual knowing.
At the exact same time, the capital area has made development in its battle against coronavirus.
