COVID Update 8.25.20

Posted on: Aug 25, 2020

Dear Holland Hall community,

We want to make you aware of one confirmed positive COVID-19 case as of today. It is related to Holland Hall’s third-grade area.

No students had direct exposure, nor did any visitors to the third-grade area. Because the third-graders have not learned their classroom routines yet, it’s prudent for us simply to delay their first day. No other grades are affected.

The individual and all direct contacts on campus have been notified and have been asked to quarantine and to contact their physicians for appropriate next steps. Potentially infected campus areas have been cleaned and will continue to be sanitized to prevent further exposure.

We continue to work with the Tulsa Health Department, and Director of Health Services Linda Christensen has already begun contact tracing. If anyone else was exposed — either directly or indirectly — they will be notified.

Direct exposure is defined as within six feet of the infected person for more than 15 minutes. Indirect exposure is defined as within six feet of the infected person for less than 15 minutes.

Parents can check the number of active COVID cases on campus daily on the hollandhall.com website here. Cases will be identified by branch, and any grades learning virtually will be noted.

No quarantine or immediate action is necessary for your child; however, please continue to be vigilant about monitoring your child and yourself for the following symptoms, check temperatures, and complete the daily COVID-19 survey.

1. Chills or Fever (temp of 100.4 degrees F or higher)

2. Cough

3. Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

4. Sore throat

5. Headache

6. Fatigue, muscle or body aches

7. Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea

8. New loss of taste or smell

9. Congestion or runny nose

If you or a family member experience symptoms or have questions about COVID-19, notify your Primary Care Provider and Director of Health Services Linda Christensen at 918-879-4714.

Holland Hall is bound by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and cannot release any further details that could be used to identify this individual. We are committed to providing all necessary updates and notifications to keep community members safe and will continue to provide information to the level allowed by law.
