Cameron ISD student tests positive for COVID
Cameron ISD has released that there is a student at Cameron Junior High that has tested positive for COVID-19.
Cameron ISD Superintendent Kevin Sprinkles said in a letter to parents on Tuesday afternoon that the district is notifying all student families that a student who was lab-confirmed to have COVID-19 was present on the campus of Cameron Junior High on Aug. 21.
Sprinkles stated that due to privacy requirements, the student’s name will not be released.
He said the Milam County Health Department has begun a case investigation and will contact any individual determined to be in close contact with the infected individual. All students and staff that came into close contact will be directly notified.
Those students and staff will remain off campus for up to 14 days to ensure they do not have the virus.
“While we do not have a reason to believe that those who were not in close contact with the infected individual have reason to be concerned, we ask that you, as always, watch for the symptoms of COVID-19,” Sprinkles said.
The following are symptoms that indicate possible infection with COVID-19:
- Temperature of 100.4 or higher
- Sore throat
- New uncontrolled cough that causes difficulty breathing
- Diarrhea, vomiting or abdominal pain
- New onset for severe headache, especially with a fever
Anyone with questions or concerns is asked to contact your student’s campus or visit cameronisd.net.
Anyone who is experiencing symptoms in encouraged to contact a physician.
