Dear #RPSStrong Family,
I'm reaching with a special RPS Direct to share that five RPS employees have tested positive for COVID-19.
Three of the employees were present at the 2015 Seddon Way Transportation Office over the past two weeks; one was present at MLK Middle School on 9-3; and one was present at Fox Elementary School on 9-3, 9-4, 9-5, and 9-10. All five 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, MLK Middle School, or Fox Elementary School during the time periods 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.
