KENOSHA CO — A staff member at Wilmot Union High School in Kenosha County has tested positive for coronavirus.

The district said the staff member was in the building Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, but showed no symptoms. The staff member began self-quarantining once symptoms developed on Thursday.

The Kenosha County Division of Health is trying to reach out to close contacts of the staff member. Classroom-wide quarantines are limited to the room where the staff member had classes.

"We worked closely with the Kenosha County Health Department to identify affected students and staff who need to be quarantined to ensure the safety and well-being of all," said District Administrator Dan Kopp. "This important safety measure is in place to prevent further spread of infection by those who were in close contact with the COVID-19 positive individual. In addition, enhanced cleaning of affected areas has occurred.”

Earlier this week, Bristol School closed after two employees and one student tested positive for COVID-19.

Two students atIndian Trail High School and Academy in Kenosha have also tested positive for COVID-19.
