Local News

ROANOKE COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) – Roanoke County Public Schools sent a release to parents that a student has tested positive for COVID-19 at Glenvar High School.

Roanoke County Schools says they have been working with the Roanoke and Alleghany Health Department and determined that no students nor staff have been exposed to this student.

Exposure is determined by an individual who has had close contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19.

Close contact is considered less than six feet for at least 15 minutes, whether wearing or not wearing a mask.

The district says they are notifying parents as a courtesy as no further action needs to be taken.

Classrooms and other spaces impacted have been cleaned and disinfected.

As always, parents should monitor their child’s health and report any symptoms to their child’s primary care physician.
