ROANOKE COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — A classroom at a Roanoke County elementary school will be closed down temporarily after a staff member tested positive for the coronavirus.
According to Roanoke County Public Schools representative Chuck Lionberger, parents were notified of the Bonsack Elementary School staff member’s positive diagnosis on Thursday, Sept. 24.
Lionberger said school officials decided to temporarily shut down the classroom “due to the unique nature of the classroom in question.”
Until the classroom reopens, the students impacted by the closure will reportedly switch to virtual learning instead.
As with all other coronavirus cases reported in the school district, Lionberger says crews will continue daily cleaning and weekly deep cleaning at the school.
This news comes after Bonsack Elementary reported a COVID-19 case involving a student in late August.
