Noblesville Schools parent, children self-quarantine after possible virus exposure


On March 9, Noblesville Schools announced it learned that a local parent was directed to self-quarantine after he or she attended an out-of-state event last week where another event attendee recently tested positive for COVID-19.

The parent is complying with the self-quarantine and also is keeping his or her children self-quarantined to avoid exposure to Noblesville Schools students. The parent returned home late last week and the district stated there was minimal risk of exposure during the school week. However, the parent and family attended a baseball event at Noblesville High School last weekend before they self-quarantined. As of press time, neither the parent or children have exhibited symptoms, and they have not tested positive for the virus, but the district is encouraging anyone in attendance at the baseball event to be vigilant in watching for COVID-19 symptoms, such as fever, cough and shortness of breath.

Noblesville Schools released the following statement:

“We are working closely with the Hamilton County Health Dept. on this issue and will continue to provide updates as we receive more information or if new developments occur. We have activated enhanced cleaning and disinfecting procedures in our schools, and our nursing team is carefully monitoring the health symptoms of students and staff.”

The district did not share the parent or the children’s names, nor did it share which school the children attend.
