Angie Franks said both of her grandchildren attending school have tested positive for COVID-19. One came home from school Monday unable to smell, she said in an interview with AJC. His mother took him for testing, where the rapid results showed positive, Franks said. By then, his brother was showing symptoms and was also tested. His positive results came back on Wednesday.
Students are being quarantined at home, but both went to school on Monday. Franks said the boys̵
7; father announced the school on Tuesday and Wednesday after receiving their test scores.
“They sat in the classroom all day without masks and without social distance,” Franks said. “And I do not know how many children have been contacted.” She said the boys did not realize the weight of the virus and were not encouraged to wear masks in classrooms or hallways from school. The Paulding County school system is not binding on students and staff, although it is supplying them to teachers.
News of Action on Channel 2 reported that there have been 53 cases of COVID-19, including 23 students reported to Paulding County schools as of July 1st.
