High school athlete tests positive for COVID-19

A student athlete at Bloomfield Hills High School tested positive for COVID-19 on Friday, August 21, Leonard Sanford Jr., director of Health and Wellness for Bloomfield Hills Schools announced. In his email to parents in the district, he said, “Per the CDC recommendation and Phase 4 COVID-19 Task Force on Education Return to School Advisory Council’s guidance, we will postpone practice for the affected program until further notice. Per guidance from the CDC, we contacted local health officials upon notification of a positive case. We have been in contact with representative agents of the Oakland County Health Department and will collaborate closely with them.” Sanford continued, “Please know that all student athletes, coaches, and ancillary staff have been wearing masks and have adhered to all CDC and MHSAA guidelines as it pertains to participation in sport during this pandemic. All families will be notified as soon as we receive additional direction from the health department. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions.” Sanford could not be reached to determine the student's sport.
