Student and staff member tested positive for coronavirus at schools in Indiana, the first US state to reopen


Just days after the state’s public schools reopened for the first time since March, at least one student and one school staff member tested positive for the coronavirus. At Greenfield-Central Community School Corporation, 20 miles east of Indianapolis, a student tested positive for the virus on the first day back to class.Superintendent Harold Olin emailed parents of students at Greenfield-Central High School on Thursday afternoon informing them that a student at the school had tested positive.

Olin told The Associated Press that the district was informed of the positive test by the Hancock County Health Department and the student was only attending school part of the day on Thursday. The student was tested for the virus a few days earlier, he said, and it appears the student had attended school before receiving the results.
