A Bakersfield City School District employee has tested positive for COVID-19, according to the district.

Public Information Officer Tabatha Mills said the district was notified of a positive COVID-19 case from a member of the BCSD Ed Center late Wednesday afternoon.

The Kern County Public Health Services Department is in the process of contact tracing and notifying anyone who may have been exposed. In addition, the district's Human Resources department is working to make contact with employees who may have been exposed, Mills said.

The district office will be closed Thursday to sanitize the facility and will reopen for business Monday.
