March 3 Announcement

COVID-19 Update from Lake Ridge Academy


I wanted to give you a quick update on COVID-19 and Lake Ridge's policies and procedures. As I mentioned in my email last Friday, in consultation with health officials, our attorney, and other independent schools we are following the guidance of the CDC, and closely monitoring the CDC's warning list by country. In accordance with CDC guidance, Lake Ridge is requiring anyone who travels to a Warning Level 3 country to self-quarantine for 14 days before returning to school.

Since I wrote on Friday, Italy has been added to the list of Warning Level 3 countries, joining China, Iran, and South Korea. (Japan is currently at Level 2 and Hong Kong is at Level 1, and as of today there are no other COVID-19 related travel warnings by country.)

As of this afternoon, and according to the Ohio Department of Public Safety, there are still no confirmed COVID-19 cases in Ohio.

We continue to monitor this situation daily, and will keep you notified of relevant updates. Please continue to adhere to good practices around safety and hygiene, including staying home if you are sick and washing hands frequently.

Thanks and regards,

Mitch White
