A student and an employee at a private school in Montgomery County, Maryland, tested positive for coronavirus this week.
Archdiocese of Washington spokesperson Paula Gwynn Grant told WTOP that a second-grade student at Holy Redeemer Catholic School in Kensington had tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday after showing mild symptoms on Tuesday.
Grant said this was after an employee had already tested positive earlier in the week.
The school community was updated by Holy Redeemer’s principal that the student is now symptom-free and healthy, per Grant, but the class and the employee remain quarantined based on guidance from the Montgomery County Health Department.
As a result, Holy Redeemer students have been doing virtual learning this past week and will do so until Sept. 18.
