Several Graduates of Atlanta Prep School Test Positive for Coronavirus

Several members of the graduating class at The Lovett School in Atlanta, Georgia, have tested positive for Covid-19, according to a letter from the school.

“The school has been notified by several Class of 2020 families that their students have tested positive for COVID-19,” the letter from Head of School Meredyth Cole and Head Nurse Shana Horan said.

It is unclear how many students have tested positive.

Families of the infected students “are working with the appropriate healthcare professionals and Departments of Health,” according to the letter.

The Lovett School, which is in the northwestern part of the city, closed its campus in mid-March. The school is an independent, coeducational day school that serves students kindergarten through 12th grade, according to the website.

Traditional graduation ceremonies were postponed until later in the summer but a drive-through graduation parade was held May 17, according to CNN affiliate WSB.
