People were exposed to the Corona virus and were not notified! I’m sorry if a student was in a classroom and the teacher was not told that is just not right ! They told the staff in an email that people were notified and they were not ! Not one person on that child’s team had been told they were exposed ! Why ? Please answer !

A. This is unchartered waters, the county health department is the point agency on notification of exposure, not the school district. As a system, we have to balance the need-to-know with privacy protections. All we can do is notify the community when we have a confirmed case so that they know of possible exposure and to seek medical attention if they become symptomatic. The Health Department will notify individuals who have been identified as close contact with instructions on possible testing or quarantine.
