However, someone who attended the event was tested positive for coronavirus after the ceremony, said Anita Stremmel, assistant director of the Department of Health in Brevard County, Florida. The school district informed the medical department, which confirmed the result with a laboratory test.
As a precautionary measure, the health ministry told parents that their children must “quarantine at home 14 days after the last visit to the facility,” according to a ministry letter from CNN.
Parents and close contact with students who may have been exposed were advised to quarantine themselves and to monitor for symptoms written by the Ministry of Health.
The medical department did not confirm whether the person who was positive for the coronavirus was a student or an adult. The students received each guest in pairs, and about 30 adults and district school staff were present at the event, a CNN spokesman for Brevard County Public School said.
The faculty, wearing gloves and masks, presented students with diplomas as they walked the stage. When the speakers laid down the stage, they removed the masks only from the speakers. After the ceremony, the students formed small groups.
