Dear Florida Union Free School District Community,

We were notified a student who attends S.S. Seward Institute tested positive for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). After consultation with the Orange County Department of Health, the students and staff who were determined to have proximate or close contact with the positive individual have been instructed to quarantine for 10 days from the last date of contact.

Thank you for understanding that due to medical privacy laws, we are not able to release the names of individuals with COVID-19. Please remember that we can help stop the spread of illness by following the guidance of the Orange County Department of Health including hand washing, avoiding gatherings, wearing masks and staying home when ill.

Sincerely,

Jan Jehring, Superintendent of Schools
