More than 40 school principals in the San Francisco Bay Area are in quarantine after being exposed to the coronavirus during an in-person meeting last month to discuss reopening campuses.

A person who attended the June 19 meeting by administrators of the Santa Clara Unified School District tested positive a few days later.

Superintendent Stella Kemp confirmed the exposure to the school board during an online meeting.

Though some board members questioned Kemp’s decision to hold an in-person meeting, the superintendent insisted the meeting was necessary, adding that everyone who attended was tested and as far as she knows no one else tested positive.
