A student at Del Prado Community Elementary School has tested positive for the coronavirus.
The school’s Principal, Sari Myers, sent a letter to parents Thursday morning notifying them of the situation, a day after the Florida Department of Health in Palm Beach County said a 6-year-old child was diagnosed with coronavirus.
Myers said the child hasn’t been on campus since last Friday and was tested Tuesday.
Health department spokesman Alex Shaw later confirmed that the 6-year-old child was the same student who tested positive.
