RPS Direct Update - June 22, 2020

Dear #RPSStrong Family, I hadn't planned on sending an RPS Direct today, as we're off in observance of Juneteenth. But we learned today that an RPS employee who works at our Vatex site on Hermitage Avenue has tested positive for COVID-19. The employee was asymptomatic at the time and is currently in isolation at home, per CDC guidelines. For health privacy reasons, we cannot release the name of the staff member, but please keep this individual and their family in your thoughts and prayers. At the direction of the Richmond City Health Department, we encourage anyone who works at, or recently visited, Vatex to self-isolate for 14 days and to reach out to their primary care provider if they experience any symptoms. Please note that free testing is available from the Richmond City Health District; to register, call 804-205-3501. Thank you for your continued support of our efforts to keep our students, families, staff, and volunteers safe and healthy at all times.
