Harrisonburg City Public Schools confirmed its first case of COVID-19 since school began at the end of August, according to Superintendent Michael Richards.

On Sunday, a Spotswood Elementary School employee reported to the school division that he or she had seen a doctor after feeling sick and that doctor recommended getting tested for the virus as symptoms pointed toward probable, Richards said.

Two other employees came forward with possible symptoms as well. All three were tested and quarantined while they awaited results. The first employee who saw the doctor tested positive as of Tuesday night. 

The results of the other two employees are pending. 

Spotswood Elementary School will be closed until Monday at the advice of the Virginia Department of Health.
