As the number of novel coronavirus infections continue to rise in Washington, the Mukilteo School District announced the closing and cleaning of two more schools Monday morning, according to a statement on their website.
The decision to close both Mariner High School and Discovery Elementary School came after the District learned Sunday evening that a parent of a Mariner student had tested positive for COVID-19, the district said.
“The Mariner student is not showing any symptoms, but will be quarantined at home and monitored for 14 days as recommended by the Snohomish Health District,” the statement says.
The Mariner student visited Discovery Elementary last week, prompting the closing of the Elementary School as well, the District said.
The closing of these two schools bring the total number of school closures in the state to six.
