One of the COVID-19 cases in Oakland county was a Farmington Hills private school teacher, after a positive test was confirmed on March 13. The Oakland Press reported that the teacher is under quarantine at home. He was in contact with students in the first and second grades. The school will remain closed until further notice.
The Jewish school, Hillel Day School, sent out a notice stating that those who had been in contact with the teacher should undergo quarantine for 14 days, in order to be on the safe side. This self-quarantine would end on March 23. The letter also stated that the teacher had been traveling within the U.S. but is now at home recovering.
"He is a beloved and valued member of our school community, a teacher whose dynamic classroom is always filled with positive energy," the school said in its letter, reported by The Oakland Press. "We wish him and all those affected a speedy recovery."
