RPS Direct Update - September 15, 2020

Dear #RPS Strong Family, I'm reaching out with this special RPS Direct to share that an RPS employee has tested positive for COVID-19. The employee was present at Thomas Jefferson High School on 9-4 and is in isolation, per CDC and local guidelines. At the direction of the Richmond City Health Department (RCHD), we encourage anyone who was present at Thomas Jefferson High School on 9-4 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 anyone who likely had significant exposure to this staff member (within 6 feet for more than 15 minutes). Our number one priority remains the health and safety of our students, staff, and families.
