A Catholic school in Marrero is pushing back its start date after a faculty member tested positive for the coronavirus.

A spokesperson for the Archdiocese of New Orleans confirmed Wednesday that students at Immaculate Conception School were scheduled to start school today, but it was delayed to August 17.

In a letter to parents, the school stated that one of the staff members tested positive for COVID-19 and that many other faculty members were potentially exposed.

The school is the second local Catholic school to be affected by a positive coronavirus test.

Earlier this week, a section of seventh graders at St. Ann Catholic School in Metairie were told to quarantine at home after a positive test at the school.
