A parent is suing the Waukesha School District (WSD) and school board in Wisconsin after her son tested positive for COVID-19.
The parent, Shannon Jensen, says in her lawsuit that WSD stopped requiring students to wear masks and ended “many other COVID-19 mitigation measures.” Jensen had her son wear masks to school, but her oldest, who attends Rose Glen Elementary School, still caught the virus.
Jensen in her lawsuit says that another student came to school with COVID-19 symptoms on September 16 and 17 but was sent home on the 17th. Jensen’s son was seated next to the sick student, who was not wearing a mask. Two days after the sick student was sent home, Jensen’s son developed COVID-19 symptoms, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
