According to leaders, the employee did not previously have any contact with students and has not been on any campuses in the district. District administrators have contacted employees in Central Office who came into contact with the individual.

The two students testing positive from Eastside have been on quarantine due to exposure to a positive case outside of the district. They have not been in contact with any students. Because of this, no students have been placed on mandatory quarantine.
