The New Pittsburgh Courier has learned late Tuesday afternoon, March 17, that the Pittsburgh Public Schools District was alerted of a relative of students who attend Pittsburgh Brookline that reportedly tested positive for COVID-19.
The District alerted families of the case of potential exposure last week and closed the school for deep cleaning. The District was notified on March 17 that a Pittsburgh Milliones student might have been indirectly exposed. All schools have been closed since Monday.
Both Pittsburgh Brookline and Pittsburgh Milliones will receive deep cleaning with the District’s electrostatic machine this week. As an added precaution, Grab and Go lunches will cease at each location. Grab and Go meal service for students who reside in Brookline will be relocated to the Tree of Life Church, located at 1036 Brookline Boulevard, Pittsburgh, 15226. Due to low attendance, the Grab and Go site at Milliones was set to close this Friday. Jubilee Kitchen, Pittsburgh Miller, Oak Hill and Pittsburgh Weil remain available to provide Grab and Go meals for Hill District students.
Parents at both schools have been notified via the District’s parent notification system.
