Notification of confirmed COVID-19 case at CHS
Posted on 09/14/2020

In keeping with district practices to respond to COVID-19, we are notifying all students, staff and guests that a CHS student is lab-confirmed to have COVID-19. The student was on the CHS campus on Thursday, 9/10 and Friday, 9/11. The student also attended the CHS Varsity Football game against El Campo at Sandcrab Stadium on Friday night. Due to privacy requirements, we will not be releasing the name of the individual or details that may identify him or her. CCISD maintenance is sanitizing and e-misting all impacted areas this afternoon. 

A new Education Task Force has been created to provide guidance for schools in cases such as these. The Bexar County Region 8 public health authority will conduct an investigation by making contact with the individual and any “close contacts”. “Close Contact” is defined as direct exposure to infectious secretions such as being coughed on or being within 6 ft of an infectious person for over 15 continuous minutes. Region 8 phone calls will have a (210) area code. CCISD will reach out to any student who had “close contact” with the individual. Close contacts will remain off-campus for up to 14 days to ensure they do not have the virus so that there will not be any further spread. Students in self- isolation will remote into their Google-Classroom for virtual instruction, daily. We will keep you apprised of further updates.

Any of the following symptoms may indicate a possible COVID-19 infection:


Feeling feverish or a measured temperature greater than or equal to 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit

Fatigue

Cough, or Difficulty breathing or, Shortness of breath

Headache

Chills or shaking or exaggerated shivering

Diarrhea, or Vomiting, or Abdominal pain

Loss of taste or smell

Significant muscle pain or ache

Congestion or runny nose, or sore throat


This list does not represent every possible symptom.

If you or any member of the CHS community begins to experience any of these symptoms in a way that is not typical, we encourage you to contact your physician. We encourage anyone in the CHS community who is lab-confirmed to have COVID-19 to please notify our school by contacting the CHS main office at 361-552-3775. 


If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to the district office at 361-552-9728 or visit our website at www.calcoisd.org.
