A parent in Reno, Nevada, knowingly sent a child to school two days after learning the student tested positive; the child has now exposed over 80 people to the deadly virus. The parent also tested positive but will not cooperate and has refused contact with the school district and health officials.
According to the Reno Gazette Journal:
The Washoe County School District would not say how many students at Marce Herz Middle School they excluded on the second day of a new school year. Those who were notified can’t return until Aug. 20 if they have not been fully vaccinated.
Families of children who may have been exposed were notified in a message sent by Herz Principal Brandon Bringhurst on Monday night.
“Out of an abundance of caution and due to possible exposure to COVID-19, your student must be in quarantine at home, per Washoe County Health District guidelines,” Bringhurst said in his message.
