Notification of confirmed COVID-19 case at JR
Posted on 09/16/2020

In keeping with district practices to respond to COVID-19, we are notifying all students, staff and guests that a JR student is lab-confirmed to have COVID-19. The student was on the JR campus on Friday, September 11th.  The student was in one self-contained classroom. CCISD has already contacted any student or family who may have had “close contact” with the individual.  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.

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. 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. 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 JR 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 JR  community who is lab-confirmed to have COVID-19 to please notify our school by contacting 361-552-3317. 


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.
