Beaufort High employee tests negative for COVID-19

Protecting yourself from coronavirus

BEAUFORT, S.C. (WTOC) - Test results for a Beaufort High School employee who was self quarantined have come back negative for COVID-19.

The employee does not have COVID-19 and will be returning to work once clearance from a medical professional has been provided.

The Beaufort County School District has postponed non-essential out-of-district student trips for the next 30 days. They will reevaluate that 30 day postponement window every week to determine if it should be extended.

Schools are notifying parents as needed.

The Beaufort County School District is awaiting guidance from the South Carolina High School League regarding scheduled athletic competitions. They are temporarily suspending all CTE student internships in health care-related settings. This will affect 45 to 50 high school students district-wide.

The school district will begin posting updates to the COVID-19 page on the district’s website at least once each day.
