TULSA — Officials with Holland Hall announced Wednesday they are closing school for the rest of the week in an effort to be cautious due to the coronavirus.

Officials say they will be closed Thursday, March 12 and Friday, March 13.

Officials say that they have been told that "several members of our community have been in contact with a family member of a patient who has tested positive for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). We aren’t aware of anyone in the Holland Hall community who is showing symptoms or has tested positive at this time."

Officials say The Tulsa Health Department has advised Holland Hall that the risk to anyone is low and there is no need for anyone to self-quarantine.

Officials say both Thursday and Friday will not be "remote learning days," instead they are to be treated as an "extension of spring break."

Holland Hall officials went on to say, "It behooves us all to be calm and consistent in our communication with students. Again health authorities say the health risk is low and we have made this decision out of an overabundance of caution."
