LOS ALAMITOS (CBSLA) — A second student at Los Alamitos High School has tested positive for COVID-19, just two weeks after the campus reopened to in-person learning.

The school’s principal sent a letter to parents of students who might have been exposed, informing of the second positive test, just a few days after notifying them about the first COVID-19 infection.

Los Alamitos High School reopened two weeks ago for in-person learning, one of the first public high schools in Orange County to have students return back to campus. Orange County is in the state’s red tier, which allowed more businesses to reopen their indoor operations and schools to reopen for in-person learning.

The infected students and those who came in close contact with them are now self-isolating for 14 days.

    I wish someone on the news writing staff would not just announce these results but I would prefer to know all the facts…how long have they been in school? How many children are there currently attending school? How many staff? Your reporting is kinda like saying oh here’s a math problem and the answer is 68 how did you get the answer ….really….to understand any problem we need all he facts pertaining to the story.

    My child is a student at Los Alamitos High and the Principal sent a letter to all parents informing us of both cases. The 2nd confirmed case is a sibling of the first confirmed case. CBS you may want to get your facts straight before insinuating the 2nd confirmed case was infection from the school.
