Noblesville Schools parent, children to self-quarantine

NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (WISH) – A Noblesville Schools parent has been directed to self-quarantine, according to the Noblesville Schools.

The school system said the parent attended an out-of-state event last week where someone else had tested positive for COVID-19.

Noblesville Schools said the parent is complying with the directive and is also quarantining their children.

While both will be quarantining themselves, the school system says that neither has tested positive for or shown symptoms of COVID-19.

However, the school system also said the family did attend a baseball event over the weekend at Noblesville High School before they knew of their need to self-quarantine.

The school system is working closely with the Hamilton County Health Department as they monitor this situation.

The district on Monday afternoon announced a designated area on its website to address questions about the virus.

The school is reminding students and staff to remember to:

  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water for 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with tissues or by coughing into the inside of the elbow. Throw used tissues away in the trash.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Stay away from people who are sick or not feeling well and avoid close contact with others through hugging, kissing or shaking hands.
  • Disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects such as toys and doorknobs.
  • Any student with a fever should remain at home until they are “fever free” for 24 hours. 
  • Seek assistance from a health professional if you see or experience symptoms that cause concern.
