On Saturday, March 14, Milford School District Superintendent Kevin Dickerson sent out a message to district families asking for their help in preventing the potential spread of COVID-19 through proactive engagement.
According to District officials, a Wilmington University-affiliated student who was in Milford High School this Thursday and Friday has exhibited mild symptoms potentially linked to the Coronavirus and is presently self-monitoring at home on the advice of medical professionals. The person was also in the presence of an employee connected to LuLu Ross Elementary School. The Division of Public Health considers the person low-risk for the Coronavirus.
“In an abundance of caution, we want you to have this information so that students, staff, families and community members can monitor their health and well-being,” stated Superintendent Dickerson in his letter to the public. “We are continuing to monitor the situation and will update you if or when additional information comes to our attention. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding, and we will continue working together and sharing information.”
Should you or someone you know develop symptoms such as coughing, fever and shortness of breath, you should contact the Division of Public Health at 1-866-408-1899 or your primary healthcare provider.
