A high school student in Washington is quarantined today after testing positive for the coronavirus. Health officials in Snohomish County, Washington confirmed that the student initially began experiencing symptoms of body aches, headache and fever. He was seen at a couple of clinics in the area, however, as the student felt better, he returned to Jackson High School on Friday.
The student returned home before attending class because the Coronavirus test results for the student came back as “presumptive positive”.
FIRST SCHOOL CLOSED DUE TO CORONAVIRUS
430 students and teachers will not be in attendance at Lake Oswego elementary school due to the Coronovirus. A staffer at the school has become ill with Coronovirus and now health officials are scrambling to find out how many people could have been exposed.
The Washington County employee is isolated at Kaiser Permanente Westside Medical Center in Hillsboro in what is considered an unexplained transmission of the disease.
Oregon Health Authority officials said, the patient doesn’t appear to have traveled to any of the countries with major outbreaks or have associated with any other person who did.
That means the person likely caught the disease from somebody in the community.
