Schools Touted by DeSantis Now in a Quarantine Nightmare
MIAMI—On Sunday afternoon, South Fork High School teacher Karen Resciniti fielded a phone call from principal Jay Blavatt. Sometime in the previous week, when thousands of students returned to public schools across Martin County, Florida, where South Fork is located, she had come in contact with a teen who was a presumed positive coronavirus case, Resciniti recalled her boss telling her.
“I knew it was coming,” Resciniti told The Daily Beast. “But I was still shocked that a student in my classroom was actually one of the first. I was like, ‘Here we go!’”
Now Resciniti is among three teachers and 95 students from South Fork who have been placed into quarantine based on the strong probability they had close interactions with the teen in question. (Blavatt did not immediately respond to an email requesting comment.)
Looking to contain possible outbreaks at Resciniti’s school, another high school, and three elementary schools, Martin County Public Schools officials have quarantined 292 students and 16 employees since <a href=”https://www.thedailybeast.com/5-year-olds-covid-saga-has-florida-mom-saying-hell-no-to-in-person-school” rel=”nofollow noopener” …continued .
