A student at Whitney High School tested positive for the novel coronavirus, the Rocklin Unified School District reported Thursday.
The student has been isolated with their immediate family, officials said in a statement.
Nine other students who were in close contact with the student were also asked to quarantine and will not be allowed to return to school until Oct. 6. The district said the students will continue their classes through distance learning.
The case has also been reported to the Placer County Public Health Department.
The district said it is not closing the school and will continue to follow the state’s health and safety guidelines.
The positive case was reported days after the school district began its hybrid learning model in which students are separated into groups to attend school on certain days and do distance learning on others. Get the full story in the video above.
