An entire Tempe elementary school class is on home quarantine after coming in close contact with somebody who tested positive for COVID-19, authorities said Wednesday.

Hudson Elementary School, which started classes Monday, sent a letter Tuesday to parents saying the exposed third grade class will be allowed back on campus Aug. 16.

A school spokeswoman told KTAR News 92.3 FM on Wednesday that the students all have access to Chromebooks for online learning during their quarantine.

The letter cites the Maricopa County Department of Public Health and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendation for 10 days of home quarantine after confirmed COVID-19 exposures.

“Close contacts are people who were within 6 feet of a person with COVID-19 while infectious for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period or who had physical contact with a person with COVID-19 while infectious, regardless of whether masks were worn,” the letter says.

Hudson, part of the Tempe Elementary School District, said exposed classrooms and other areas were deep cleaned.
