RE: Exposure to Positive COVID-19 Case 

The Wayne County Health Department has conducted a contact investigation and identified your child as a close contact to a confirmed coronavirus (COVID-19) case from the Edsel Ford Freshmen and JV basketball games at Southgate. 

The virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person to person, through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Spread is more likely when people are less than six feet for at least 15 minutes. A person who is a close contact of someone who is infected with COVID-19 may experience COVID-19 symptoms typically within two to fourteen days after a person is exposed. 

A Wayne County Health Department representative will be contacting you to provide specific instructions and answer questions you may have. You need to begin monitoring your child for symptoms of COVID-19 by: your child’s temperature twice a day, watch for fever (>100.4oF), cough, and shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, runny or stuffy nose, loss of taste or smell, abdominal pain. If any of these symptoms develop consult with your family’s physician immediately and notify Wayne County Health Department. 

Your child is required to: 

  • Stay home (quarantine) until 14 days after last exposure. Maintain at least 6 feet from others at all times. 
  • The date that your child will be required to stay home until will be determined by Wayne County Health Department during the phone call that you receive. 
  • Avoid contact with people who are at a higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19. This includes people of any age who have, cancer, chronic kidney disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, obesity, heart failure/coronary artery disease, sickle cell disease, diabetes, and are immunocompromised 

Continue educational instruction of your child at home as directed by the School Administrator. Your school district is aware of this quarantine order and will assist you with instructional needs. 

If you have questions, please contact Wayne County Health Department at 734-727-7078

As a precaution, we will be disinfecting applicable areas of the school. This may include spraying classrooms, hallways, locker rooms, and common areas as needed with a sanitizer, along with other methods of disinfection.
