I am writing to inform you about the results of a positive test for Covid-19 a cafeteria worker made known to us yesterday. Since learning of this news I have been in contact with the St. Joseph County Health Department. According to the Health Department, there is very little risk with the food you may have received during the period from Wednesday through this past Friday. Nevertheless, their recommendation is to continue to monitor your students as you would typically for any related symptoms.
The Food Service Department’s response was to thoroughly sanitize their service area and utensils before the distribution of food today. And, the crew serving the meals last week has been temporarily replaced with another crew while they self quarantine for fourteen days. I apologize for any concern this may cause you, but I felt it was important to make you aware.
