Press Release

A parent of a student at Chadron Public Schools is being tested for the novel
coronavirus (COVID-19).  Panhandle Public Health District and Chadron Public
Schools have been in planning meetings and preparing for this situation.  PPHD
advised us early this afternoon of the situation and that there was no cause for
alarm and that the test results will be released as soon as they are available in
24-48 hours.  The parent and student have followed guidance by health officials
to self-quarantine. The health care systems followed proper PPE and are not at
an increased risk because the parent followed proper procedures and called prior
