ROY — A large number of students at a Weber County junior high school have been quarantined after one student tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
At least 100 students are in quarantine at Sand Ridge Junior High in Roy, according to Weber School District spokesperson Lane Findlay, who said the student tested positive Monday.
Under health protocols established by the district, city and Weber-Morgan Health Department, as well as the state of Utah, students are required to quarantine for at least 14 days. Each of the 100 students is in online learning.
“It’s a serious situation,” Findlay told KSL TV. “We do have higher-risk individuals in our schools — staff members and students. We take these things very seriously. I know it’s an inconvenience for those who have to quarantine. But we anticipated this, we have options available, and we’re really trying to protect people’s health and prevent the spread of this in our schools.”
