Two high schoolers quarantined

Two Louisa County High School students are spending time in quarantine because they were in contact with someone outside the school who tested positive for COVID-19.

In a Sept. 8 letter to families, Principal Lee Downey said the two students had not been in school for a week. 

"The Thomas Jefferson Health District has confirmed that no LCHS student or staff member will be involved in the contact tracing process since they were never at risk or in close contact with these two students," he said.

Downey commended students and staff for continuing to follow safety guidelines.

In the first week of school in August, four students and one staff member were reported to have COVID-19. All five were believed to have contracted the virus outside of school. Since then, none of the six public schools have reported any additional cases.
