Sandy Glacet, Director of Sewanee Children’s Center, has sent a notification that a parent of a child who attends Sewanee Children’s Center has tested positive for COVID-19. She writes that children in attendance at SCC on Friday, March 13, may have been exposed. So far no other family member of the parent has gotten sick.
Sandy has said that the parent who tested positive did not come upstairs in Claiborne Parish House, but was only in the downstairs area Otey Parish provides to the independent Sewanee Children’s Center. The SCC staff cleaned the downstairs at the end of the day on March 13, and the area continues to be cleaned by SCC’s custodian while the children are out of school.
The only area Otey Parish shares with SCC is the nursery on Sundays. Christian Formation Director Jeannie Babb is in the process of reaching out to the parents of children who attended the nursery on March 1 and March 8. The nursery was closed on March 15 and will remain closed at least the rest of this month.
