PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Rhode Island has had at least 19 students and staff members test positive for the coronavirus since schools reopened for in-person learning this week, Gov. Gina Raimondo said Wednesday.

The state’s 14 coronavirus testing sites dedicated solely to schoolchildren and school employees identified eight positive cases of the disease since schools reopened for in-person learning on Monday. In addition, there were 11 positive cases in schools in people who were tested elsewhere, the Democratic governor said at a news conference.

“We will continue to see cases in schools, just as we’ve seen cases all summer long,” Raimondo said.
