Wednesday morning, Ursuline Academy of Dallas posted on its Facebook page that a member of its extended school community is “presumed positive” for COVID-19.
Ursuline Academy said "out of an abundance of caution," the campus will remain closed throughout the day and undergo a thorough cleaning.
However, Dallas County health officials have not released additional details regarding this case.
St. Rita Catholic School in Dallas was also closed Wednesday, a spokesperson with the diocese confirmed.
The school will remain closed throughout the rest of the week and will also undergo a deep cleaning, officials said.
