MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Montgomery County Public Schools announced the discovery of a positive coronavirus case from an elementary school on Monday.
According to the school district’s COVID-19 dashboard, the positive case — which was reported on Monday, Sept. 14 — came from the Gilbert Linkous Elementary School community, but officials did not specify whether the case involved a student or a staff member.
“A positive case indicates that the person has been tested and received a report confirming that they have the virus,” the Montgomery County Public Schools coronavirus dashboard said. “These individuals will be isolated for a minimum of 14 days, or when they receive a negative COVID-19 case, before they can return to campus.”
This marks the second COVID-19 case from the school district within a month — with the first one reported from Auburn High School on Aug. 26 — and the first case since Montgomery County Public Schools moved to online learning for grades 4-12 on Monday, Sept. 14.
