Coronavirus

ROCKBRIDGE COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) – Rockbridge County Schools’ Superintendent Philip Thompson has penned a letter indicating a staff member at Fairfield Elementary School has tested positive for COVID-19.

In the letter, Thompson says the Health Department will be in contact with anyone who may have been exposed to this person and has advised other staff members to self-quarantine.

“As defined by the Health Department, a person has potentially been exposed if they have been within 6 feet of a positive case for a total of fifteen minutes. A person is not considered potentially exposed just by having been in the same building as the positive case and will not need to quarantine unless advised to do so by the Health Department.”
