Wilmette's Loyola Academy Cancels Classes For 2 Days After Student Possibly Exposed To Coronavirus

WILMETTE, Ill. (CBS)-- Classes will be canceled for a second day Tuesday at Loyola Academy in Wilmette, due to the threat of coronavirus.

Classes were also canceled Monday at the school.

A Loyola student and his family came in contact with a person who tested positive, the school said.

The student and his family are not showing any symptoms, but are still under a 14-day quarantine. Doctors are awaiting final confirmation from the CDC to see if the person who tested positive is in fact infected.

No one who has tested positive has actually been at the school. Administrators believe the risk to the students and staff is very low.

All classes were canceled Monday as the campus undergoes a deep cleaning. Students and parents were advised to review Loyola's E-Learning Schedule and check for assignments in the onCampus Assignment Center.
