“If you or your child was at Toomer Elementary School last week, we ask that you monitor yourself or your child’s health for fever and symptoms of respiratory illness. In the unlikely event that you or your child develops a fever, runny nose, cough and/or shortness of breath, call your healthcare provider immediately,” Carstarphen wrote.
A contract employee who worked at the district’s downtown headquarters, the Alonzo A. Crim Center for Learning and Leadership, also tested positive for COVID-19, Carstarphen said.
That worker had limited exposure to staff and students, she said, and “we are beyond the 14-day transmission period from the last time the contract employee was at (building).”
The district's first case, an employee who worked at North Atlanta High School, was announced March 19. The district said students were not exposed to that person.
