Dodd City ISD on Friday confirmed a COVID-19 case on campus.
“In keeping with Dodd City ISD’s practices to respond to COVID-19, we are notifying all student families that an elementary student was lab-confirmed to have COVID-19 and was last present on the campus of Dodd City School on Monday, August 16, 2021. Due to privacy requirements, we will not be releasing the name of the individual or details that may identify him or her,” said Superintendent Bruce Mauppin.
Mauppin said individuals determined to be in close contact with the infected individual have been notified.
Additionally, all areas of the campus where this individual went were thoroughly cleaned and will be deep cleaned again.
“While we do not have reason to believe that those who were not in close contact with the infected individual have reason to be concerned, we ask that you, as always, watch for symptoms of COVID-19.”
Any of the following symptoms indicate a possible COVID-19 infection:
● Temperature of 100 degrees Fahrenheit or higher
● sore throat,
● New uncontrolled cough that causes difficulty breathing (or, for students with a chronic allergic/asthmatic
cough, a change in their cough from baseline)
● Diarrhea, vomiting, or abdominal pain
● New onset of severe headache, especially with a fever
● Loss of taste or smell
● Chills, shaking, or exaggerated shivering
● Significant muscle pain or ache
“If you or any member of the Dodd City ISD community does begin experiencing any of these symptoms in a way that is not typical, we encourage you to contact your physician. We encourage anyone in the Dodd City ISD community who is lab-confirmed to have COVID-19 to please notify our school by contacting the campus principal.”
