On 7/2/20, USD 480 received notification that a student athlete at LHS who has been present at summer workouts has received a confirmed positive diagnosis for novel coronavirus, or Covid-19.  The student was last in attendance on (Monday, June 29th).  As such, students or staff in attendance on this date may have been exposed to this virus.   We are working with Seward County Health Department to identify those individuals who may have been in direct prolonged contact (within 6 feet for 15 minute period) with the individual.  Further contact will be made to those individuals with guidance on quarantine orders.   According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the virus is thought to spread between people who are in close contact with each other through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
