GREAT BEND, Kan. (KSNW) – The City of Great Bend says children who attended a Youth Academy Class last week were possibly exposed to COVID-19.

A city employee who spoke at Youth Academy Class #51 on June 24 became ill later that same day and tested positive for the coronavirus. The employee briefly helped with some activities during the class.

The city wants parents to know that “the children present during the day are considered to have a COVID-19 possible exposure.”

Parents should monitor their children for symptoms until July 8 and follow the instructions and warnings of public health guidance.
