IMMEDIATE RELEASE

IMMEDIATE RELEASE
To: All Local Media Outlets
From: Amy Arcurio, Superintendent
Greater Johnstown School District
A teacher at the Greater Johnstown High School, who works as an employee at Conemaugh Health System, believed they may have been in contact with a person who was in contact with a patient suspected of having COVID-19 last evening while at work. With the best of intentions, this employee reported to our high school today, donned a surgical mask, and told our students to refrain from close contact. After conversation with Conemaugh Hospital officials we have learned that there has been no confirmation of COVID -19 and that our employee had no direct contact with any suspected patients. The advice from Conemaugh Health System is to continue to follow universal precautions such as frequent hand-washing, avoid touching your face, and cover a cough or sneeze with a tissue or elbow. At no time did they direct our employee to self-quarantine, refrain from public places, report off work, or wear a mask. Again, we appreciate the effort of our employee but fully recognize the immediate concerns this caused within our schools and community.
