Corona Virus Scare at Sanborn

Sydnie Lipski, Reporter

On Sept. 21, 2020, the District Health Department notified the Alpena school district about two students, one at Ella White and the other at Sanborn, having a “probable” case of COVID-19. When a case of COVID-19 is deemed “probable,” the DHD treats it like a positive case because that means the person was around someone with a positive COVID-19 test and now has symptoms of the virus. Staff and students who were in close contact were sent home to self-quarantine for 14 days.
