LEBANON, Ohio — Lebanon City Schools announced Tuesday that 21 students have been quarantined after a student tested positive for COVID-19.

The student who tested positive attended Lebanon High School, according to the district's superintendent. No staff members have been quarantined.

The district, which resumed in-person classes Monday with a hybrid in-person/online model, urged parents to keep children who are feeling sick at home.

"Please assess your kids every day and keep them home if they have symptoms," read a post from the school's Facebook page. "Employers, please work with your employees if they need time off to stay home with a sick or quarantined child."
