Staff member at Kensington Intermediate School in Rocky River tests positive for COVID-19

Contact tracing efforts are under way.

ROCKY RIVER, Ohio — The Cuyahoga County Board of Health has begun contact tracing efforts after a Rocky River City Schools employee tested positive for COVID-19.

Principal Todd Murphy confirms the individual is a staff member at Kensington Intermediate School, which houses kids in grades three through five. The patient's identity or position was not released to the public, but the board of health was notified per state regulations.

The board of health will determine if any students or additional staff members will need to be quarantined due to possible exposure. In the meantime, officials are asking parents and students to continue to follow health guidelines such as wearing masks and social distancing and also use the CDC's "self-checker" to monitor for possible coronavirus symptoms.
