9 test positive for COVID-19 at Georgia school where teen was suspended for viral photo

August 9, 2020

Nine people have become infected with coronavirus at the Georgia school where a teen was suspended for recording footage of a crowded hallway in which many students were seen without masks, according to a report.

North Paulding High School in Dallas, Ga., informed parents in a letter Saturday that six students and three faculty members have tested positive for the virus, ABC News reported.

“We have anticipated that COVID-19 would impact us as it has nearly every community, and the district has worked in partnership with the Department of Public Health (DPH) to proactively implement safety precautions and response plans,” they wrote in the letter.

The outbreak comes after Hannah Watters, 15, was suspended last week for posting to Twitter a video of other pupils jam-packed in the hallway during the first week back of classes.

She tweeted on Friday that the school had rescinded her suspension. “This morning my school called and they have deleted my suspension,” she wrote on Twitter.
