Fremont Public Schools announced Friday afternoon that Team 7B at Fremont Middle School has three students who have tested positive for COVID-19.
The positive students and close contacts are currently quarantined/self-monitoring for symptoms per Three Rivers Public Health/FPS protocol. Students who are close contacts have been contacted.
Earlier this week, FPS announced that three students in Team TC at Fremont Middle School also had tested positive for COVID-19.
