SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — 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. Some board members questioned Kemp’s decision to hold an in-person meeting.
