ROUND ROCK, Texas – Editor’s note: A related video was published on April 6, 2020, regarding the death of an ISD Austin employee.
The letter stated that employees recently helped prepare roadside food at Anderson Mill Elementary School, and the employee’s last day on campus was March 31.
The district said all employees who worked with this person had been notified and would be quarantined for the next two weeks. The district also said the food preparation area in the school had been cleared and sanitized.
Food distribution will continue according to plan with the new team.
This happened only a few hours after that Austin ISD announced the death of one of his own food service employees. While Patricia Hernandez tested positive for COVID-19, the district could not be certain whether that was the cause of her death.
You can read the complete letter below:
“Round Rock ISD Parents and Guardians,
Today, our District was informed that an ISD Round Rock employee had received a positive diagnosis of COVID-19.
This employee is a food service worker who recently prepared and distributed roadside food at Anderson Mill Elementary School. The last day of employees on campus is Tuesday, March 31. All food service team members who work with these employees are quarantined for the next 14 days. Over the weekend, the food preparation area at Anderson Mill is cleaned and sanitized. Food distribution continues at school with a new team.
Safety is very important because our dedicated employees work to ensure students get what they need when the campus is closed. Our certified food service workers wear gloves to prepare and distribute food, and after each use, the food preparation area is cleaned. More mandatory practices include social distance at work and frequent hand washing. Starting tomorrow, all food service workers in each of the 13 District food distribution locations will also wear face masks on their noses and mouths.
Words cannot express our gratitude to our food service staff, whose work and dedication enable us to continue providing essential services to our students during these public health emergencies. Our thoughts are with our employees and their families and all people affected by COVID-19.
Steve Flores, Ph.D.
School Superintendent “
