Two members of the Amphitheater High School cheerleading squad have tested positive for COVID-19, a district spokeswoman confirmed.

Here is a statement from the district on COVID-19 safety:

When we have a positive COVID-19 test reported, we immediately contact the Pima County Health Department, which handles contact tracing. We work with them and notify anyone who the county determines was in close contact with the positive case. Those individuals are advised to quarantine for 14 days in accordance with Pima County Health’s guidelines.. Health officials define a close contact as anyone who was within 6 feet of the positive case for more than 15 minutes over the course of 24 hours. We also notify the entire campus community when we have a positive case at a school.

The Amphi cheer squad earned notoriety in February when it placed third at a national competition.
