UPDATE: As of Monday March 9, one of four children home with family members that tested positive for COVID-19 has also tested positive. This child is in elementary school. Elk Grove Unified School District officials are not saying which school the affected student attends. 

The decision was made by the Board of Trustees, labor groups, the Sacramento County Office of Education, and the Sacramento County Public Health Department.
