A student and a teacher have tested positive for COVID-19 at Holy Redeemer Catholic School in Kensington.
The teacher tested positive for COVID-19 early last week, Paula Grant, a spokeswoman for the Archdiocese of Washington, wrote in an email to Bethesda Beat on Saturday. Montgomery County health officials then determined that the class needed to quarantine.
Grant wrote that on Tuesday a student started experiencing mild symptoms of the virus. The student was tested Wednesday and the result came back positive Thursday evening, she wrote.
“The principal shared with the community that the student is now symptom free and feeling healthy. The class and employee remain quarantined under the direction of the Montgomery County Health Department,” Grant wrote.
Grant added that the class has been using virtual learning since they were quarantined, which will continue through Sept. 18.
The Washington Post first reported the news Friday about the positive cases at Holy Redeemer.
