“Locally in Alexandria, we have had nine cases [with] dozens and dozens of contacts, meaning when somebody has a positive case we do an investigation and determine everybody they have had close contact with,” Alexandria Health Department Director Dr. Stephen Haering told City Council and the school board in a joint meeting on Monday night.

Haering added, “We have not had any positive cases in any ACPS staff or students, and some have been tested.”

The Health Department is currently investigating the infectious cases, and is asking anyone in close contact with them to self-quarantine and to monitor their symptoms.

“If they start experiencing symptoms, they will immediately undergo testing,” notes a city release.
