Individual at Waubonsie Tests Positive for COVID

AURORA – An individual at Waubonsie Valley High School has tested positive for COVID-19, the school said on Friday night.

“The individual has been advised regarding the need to isolate and seek medical care,” said Principal Jason Stipp. “We have coordinated with the health department to identify anyone who had recent close contact with the individual in order to minimize the spread of infection in our school and community.”

“Any students and staff that are identified and were considered in close contact will be notified directly and advised to quarantine for 14 days and report any changes to their health status to their medical provider and the school.”

“The health and safety of our students and staff is a top priority for the district. Our custodial staff will clean as necessary any affected areas following CDC and public health guidelines and our school will be open Monday.”

This is the third reported case in Waubonsie Valley in the past four weeks. The Indian Prairie School District 204 has reported 31 cases throughout its buildings since October 20.

Some high school students are scheduled to return for in-person learning on Monday, November 30.
