RPS Direct Update - September 10, 2020

Dear #RPSStrong Family, I'm reaching out with a special RPS Direct to share that four RPS employees have tested positive for COVID-19. The employees were present at Henderson Middle School and the 2015 Seddon Way Transportation Office over the last two weeks. They are in isolation, per CDC and local guidelines. At the direction of the Richmond City Health Department (RCHD), we encourage all individuals who were present at Henderson Middle School or the 2015 Seddon Way Transportation Office over the last two weeks to monitor their symptoms and reach out to their primary care provider if they have any concerns. Individuals can also contact RCHD’s COVID-19 hotline at (804) 205-3501. In addition, per RCHD protocol, contact tracers will reach out to individuals who likely had significant exposure to any of the four staff members (within 6 feet for more than 15 minutes). Finally, out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to reschedule this afternoon's Learning Kit distribution at Henderson MS. Thank you for your understanding.
