From The Trussville Tribune staff reports
TARRANT — The Tarrant Board of Education confirmed on Tuesday night that one of its elementary school students tested positive for COVID-19.
The board sent out a memo to parents confirming that a student had tested positive for the virus but are unsure of when the student was first exposed.
“Please continue social distancing by remaining at home with your family unless it is for work or obtaining essential items like food and medicine,” Superintendent Dr. Shelly N. Mize told parents in the memo. “Practice good hand washing and respiratory etiquette for coughs and sneezes.”
Mize stated that the Tarrant schools are in the process of being disinfected in preparation for students and staff returning to school.
This case coincides with a Helena High School student also testing positive for the virus. These new positive tests are but two of 51 news cases of COVID-19 in the state, the Alabama Department of Health announced on Wednesday afternoon. Twenty-five of those cases are in Jefferson County.
