School Officials were notified today, October 21, that a Bellaire High School student has received a positive test for COVID. The student has been in quarantine with their family since Sunday, October 18. School Officials are working with the Belmont County Health Department on social tracing measures. The names and contact information have been provided to the Health Department of anyone who, by the Health Department’s definition, would have come in close contact with this student. The Health Department will make direct contact with these individuals making the necessary determination on a case by case basis. We believe this to be an isolated incident.
