NORFOLK, Va. -- Norfolk Academy said in a Friday statement that a student who potentially came in contact with novel coronavirus tested negative for the virus.

Faculty members will still meet Monday, March 16 to prepare for distance learning.

The school's headmaster has sent families three letters about the coronavirus.

In a letter sent Thursday, families were informed that during Spring Break, a student in the upper school may have been exposed to someone who has since been diagnosed with the virus. (The letter can be seen above in the carousel)

That student's entire family will remain under self-quarantine for 14 days, the CDC's recommended quarantine period, as an extra precaution.

They're showing no symptoms.
