Misinformation stating that two students had tested positive within this week of school and not being allowed to convalesce at home is false.
Mr Mijares stated that in fact there was one student who was sent to school by the parents even after a family member tested positive for COVID-19 and was living with the student. EPISD and the proper authorities are conducting contact tracing and waiting for further information regarding this issue.
It is reminded to ALL persons that regulations under the Emergency Declaration state once tested or tested positive all persons in a household must quarantine until a negative test results. If these regulations are not followed possible fine or jail time may result.
