Notice of Confirmed COVID-19 Case on Campus

In keeping with Cotulla ISD’s practices to respond to COVID-19, we are notifying all student families that a staff member who was lab-confirmed to have COVID-19 was present on the campus of Ramirez/Burks Elementary on Friday, October 2, 2020.  Due to privacy requirements, we will not be releasing the name of the individual or details that may identify him or her.

 The local health department has begun a case investigation and will contact any individuals determined to be in close contact with the infected individual.  All students and staff that came into close contact will be directly notified no later than Tuesday, October 6, 2020 at 8:00am.  Those that were in close contact will remain off campus for up to 14 days to ensure they do not have the virus, so that there will not be any further spread. We will keep you apprised of further updates.

The contaminated area has been commercially disinfected as an added safety precaution.
