Dear #RPS Strong Family,
I'm reaching out with this special RPS Direct to share that three RPS employees have tested positive for COVID-19.
Two of the employees were already in quarantine as a result of an earlier positive case at the Seddon Way Transportation Office. One of these individuals was last at that site on 9-3 and the other was last there on 9-14. A third employee from John Marshall High School, who has not been at the school for several months, was at the Vatex Building on 9-15. All three employees are in isolation, per CDC and local guidelines.
At the direction of the Richmond City Health Department (RCHD), we encourage anyone who was present at the Seddon Way Transportation Office or the Vatex Building on the dates listed above to monitor their symptoms and reach out to their primary care provider if they have any concerns. Individuals can also contact RCHD’s COVID-19 hotline at (804) 205-3501.
In addition, per RCHD protocol, contact tracers will reach out to anyone who likely had significant exposure to these staff members (within 6 feet for more than 15 minutes).
Our number one priority remains the health and safety of our students, staff, and families. We will continue to work in close collaboration with the Richmond City Health District to ensure the well-being of the entire RPS community.
If you have any questions, as always, please don't hesitate to contact me.
