Communication sent via email: March 14, 2020
From: Superintendent Dr. Adam Fineske
Dear OH Families and Village Community:
As reported recently by multiple national media outlets, a Rhode Island student who attended an NBA game had contact with the same player as two of our students (on the following day). That Rhode Island student has now been diagnosed with COVID-19. All the students were in close proximity to the player, who has since been diagnosed with the virus.
For these reasons and to seek guidance, I contacted the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department first thing this morning. Here is what was determined and communicated to me moments ago:
“After consulting with the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) and with CDC guidance, we (Toledo-Lucas County Health Department) have determined there is no risk and no self-quarantine is needed.”
To maintain transparency in our communications with you and address any community concerns, I decided to send this update. Along with members of my leadership team, we are monitoring news and social media and sharing information with the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department. We will do so throughout this crisis.
Please stay safe and healthy and take care of one another.
Dr. Adam Fineske
