The affected teacher felt ill at work Friday and 911 was called, said Looney. The teacher was taken to a health facility, said Looney.
Looney said the teacher had extensive contact with students and other staff, and that the schools were identifying those students and staff for the Department of Health for follow up. He said the district was not a health agency and medical follow-up would fall to health agencies rather than the schools. There has been no word from the health department on whether the many students and staff with whom the teacher had contact will be asked to self-quarantine.
Fulton learned the teacher tested positive for the virus today at 11 a.m. and dismissed the three schools at 2 in the afternoon.
