Clifton Middle School
share with

Wednesday evening Clifton Middle School underwent a “deep cleaning”after a Clifton Middle School parent who works in the health industry had beenin contact with an individual who had been exposed to COVID-19, the illnesscaused by the novel coronavirus.

According to a statement from Monrovia Unified School District (MUSD), neither the parent nor their children have shown any of the symptoms associated with coronavirus. Out of an abundance of caution, the parent and their children are self-isolating through the end of the illness’ incubation period of 14 days.

The school was operating as usual Thursday morning — though therewere several news vans and cameras outside.
