An Oklahoma high school student went to school despite “knowingly” being infected with the coronavirus.
The Moore Public Schools district in Oklahoma City sent a letter to parents on Friday notifying them that it had learned of the student’s health condition on Thursday night, News9 reported.
The unidentified student attends Westmoore High School.
District nurses completed contact tracing and contacted staff, students and parents who may have been in close contact with the infected pupil.
The building and classrooms were deep cleaned and disinfected, the district said.
A preliminary investigation found that the student’s parents were allegedly mistaken about the student’s end-of-quarantine date.
Last week, Oklahoma recorded 4,702 new cases of COVID-19, for a total of 46,103 confirmed cases, according to the state’s Department of Health website.
