WOODHAVEN (WXYZ) — As of Friday, Oct. 23, there were 51 Woodhaven High School students who have been quarantined. This comes after three students recently tested positive for the virus. One staff member at the high school has also tested positive for the coronavirus.

The school district released the latest numbers on its COVID-19 dashboard, which is required by state regulation.

The dashboard includes year to date (YTD) numbers as well. So far, a total of 78 students within the entire Woodhaven–Brownstown School District have been quarantined. Six staff members have tested positive for the virus.

So far this year, eight students have tested positive for the virus within the school district.

In a statement Monday, the superintendent said that one student tested positive on Friday and then a second student tested positive on a rapid test. But later that day, they learned the student had received a negative rapid test. They are expecting results on Monday for the student who tested positive and negative for PCR results.
