•• [Update] •• This update was posted on the Caddo Public Schools Facebook page on Tuesday morning:
Attention: After speaking with the Bryan County Health Department this morning, this is the following protocols:
1. The health department will begin the process of tracing individuals who are considered “close contact” with the infected individual athlete (six feet or under for 15 minutes or more). If an individual falls in that category, you will be contacted by the health department.
2. If your child does not fall in the category of No. 1, that means more than likely your child has not been infected with the virus from the infected individual. However, if you are in doubt or your child shows symptoms, have your child tested.
3. The individual athlete who has tested positive is a High School Softball player. This means that, in simple terms, Football, Boys Basketball, Baseball and Cheerleading athletes should be ok, but I cannot 100% guarantee that. Once again, if you are not contacted by the health department and you still worry that your child may be infected, go get tested.
4. Tests can be done at the Bryan County Health Department, 1524 Chuckwa Drive, Durant.
