MANOR, Texas - A high school student and their parent are self-isolating at home.
A Manor High School senior and their parent are taking the precautions after visiting the Houston Rodeo on Monday, March 9, according to Manor ISD. They were there just days after a man in Montgomery County visited the rodeo. The Montgomery County individual has been tested and is a presumptive positive patient with the coronavirus, according to Manor ISD.
The results of that test from the CDC are still pending.
"While we await the results for the individual, out of an abundance of caution, the student and parent are under self-monitoring and social distancing at home. At last check, both the parent and student are not showing any COVID-19 symptoms. The parent and student did not return to campus after visiting the Houston Rodeo," Manor ISD said in a letter addressed to their community.
Mayor Sylvester Turner, Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo and local health officials held a joint conference Wednesday afternoon to announce the major closure. It is the first time in HLSR history that it has been closed after opening 88 years ago.
