March 18, 9:00 p.m.
This evening through social media we learned that one of our seventh grade parents received a diagnosis of presumed COVID-19, but has not yet been tested. The diagnosis was reached via an urgent care clinic based on negative test results for flu, as well as the parent's symptoms. This information was verified before we sent this communication.
We continue to ask that all of our families follow the current guidelines as laid out by the New Orleans Department of Health:
- If you have symptoms including a fever, cough, or shortness of breath, call your primary care provider. Do not go to the doctor without calling first.
- If you do not have a primary care provider, call the Louisiana Department of Health hotline at 1-855-523-2652.
- If you are severely ill and you think you need hospitalization, call 9-1-1 or go to an emergency room.
Our thoughts and prayers are with this family at this time.
Together we are Saints.
