The Lovett School in Atlanta, Georgia, announced that several members of the graduation class 2020 tested positive for COVID-19.
The school was notified about the infected cases by the family members of the students who carry the virus. However, it’s still unknown how many of them tested positive.
The families of the infected students are working with healthcare professionals on isolating them and providing them with proper care.
The Lovett School closed the campus in mid-March. Located in the north-western part of the city, Lovett School is a daily coeducational venue, serving kindergarten through 12th-grade students.
The school postponed the traditional graduation ceremony for later this summer, but they still held a drive-through graduation parade on May 17.
After this event, a graduate senior has tested positive for coronavirus. It’s known that he/she was accompanied by a group of friends, so the exact number of infected people remains unrevealed.
Georgia state reaches almost 43,000 infected cases, while 1,800 have lost their lives due to COVID-19 infection.
The current coronavirus hospitalizations in Atlanta continue to fall, but the deadly virus is still spreading, and this time, over a younger population.
