LAS CRUCES, NM (KTSM) — Las Cruces Public Schools confirmed an employee at Mayfield High School tested positive for COVID-19. They say the employee has not been inside any buildings on the Mayfield campus since August 28.
Eric Fraass, principal at Mayfield, notified his staff about the test result on Friday afternoon. If contact tracing determines that anyone has been in meaningful contact with that employee, LCPS will contact them directly.
The announcement comes one day after Gadsden ISD announced the temporary closure of the La Union Elementary and Anthony Elementary campuses due to positive COVID-19 test results. Socorro ISD in El Paso also confirmed two positive test results among employees in their district on Friday. Those two employees work at Desert Wind Elementary and Eastlake High School.
