Brenham ISD suspends drive-thru meals

A staff member in the child nutrition department is under self-quarantine after possible exposure to COVID-19, so drive-thru meals are suspended out of caution.

BRENHAM, Texas —

Brenham ISD has suspended all drive-thru meal sites after finding out a staff member in the child nutrition department is now under self-quarantine for possible exposure to COVID-19.

The individual is not positive for COVID-19 at this time, and the drive-thru meals have been suspended out of an abundance of caution for the safety of Brenham ISD children and families.

The staff member was serving at Alton Elementary School and Brenham High School. As a precaution, all child nutrition staff operating the sites have been notified and asked to self-quarantine for 14 days and the sites will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. 

The public's exposure to this individual was limited, and there should be no increased risk for families who received meal assistance. The Child nutrition staff take a number of precautions to minimize the risk of spread at work, including wearing gloves when packing food into bags and when handing bags out at curbside deliveries. 

The district apologizes for the abrupt change, but does not want to take any chances regarding the safety and well-being of the Brenham ISD staff, families, and community.
