Milford School District-Community,
We would like to update you on the status from a previous call on Saturday, March 14, in regard to a Wilmington University-affiliated student in connection to Milford High School and Lulu Ross Elementary School. The person has tested negative for COVID-19, the coronavirus. Again, the person has tested negative for COVID-19 and we are thankful the person is presently feeling well and healthy.
We received additional general guidance from the Delaware Division of Public Health for parents and families. This guidance includes:
• Avoid group gatherings for students, including sleepovers, play dates, parties, or teen groups.
• Those who do need childcare, try to limit the number of interactions and families involved as possible.
• If you are socializing with others, maintain 6 feet of distance between individuals outside of the immediate family.
• If outside for walks, hikes, bike rides, or other activities, it is important to still maintain 6 feet between people beyond immediate family and limit your group size.
We will continue working together and sharing information.
