An Ector Elementary student has tested positive for COVID, according to a release from Ector ISD Superintendent Jennifer Morris.
“The student has not been on campus since before exposure and will not return until a lab-confirmed negative result is documented,” the release states. “It is determined that no students were considered to be in close contact with this elementary student. While we do not have nay reason to believe that those who were not in close contact with the infected individual have any reason to be concerned, we advice you to monitor your child’s health, follow CDC guidelines for people who have had close contact, and contact our primary care physician if you or your child develop symptoms.”
Morris said in the statement there is no need to have a student tested if they are not showing any symptoms.
“Ector ISD is continuing to monitor this situation and will provide additional information as needed,” Morris said in the statement.
The student’s name was not released for privacy reasons.
