Cuero coach tests positive for COVID-19
Cuero ISD was notified today, June 25, that a district employee received a positive diagnosis of COVID-19, according to a letter sent out by athletic director Jack Alvarez.
The district employee, a coach, is asymptomatic. The coach was last on district property on June 17.
“Doing our due diligence, we have to shut down for two weeks,” superintendent Dr. Micah Dyer said.
UIL (University Interscholastic League) guidelines state that if a positive case is identified among a participant in summer activities, either staff or a student, the group to which that staff member or student was assigned and in contact with must be removed from the sessions while all member of the group self-isolate. If the confirmed individual regularly had close contact outside of a single group, then all of the students and staff with whom the confirmed individual had close contact shall be removed from workouts for two weeks.
“We are going to be very proactive on doing everything we can to keep our employees and student-athletes safe,” Alvarez said. “We will be closing all summer conditioning activities until July 13.”
