CLEVELAND — Two schools in the Solon School District in suburban Cleveland are closed Thursday as a precaution because a staffer “traveled home from Dallas on Frontier Airlines Tuesday on a different flight, but perhaps the same aircraft,” as Vinson, the school district said in a statement.

“Although we believe what the science community and public health officials are telling us about the low risk of possible transmission of the virus through indirect contact, we are nonetheless taking the unusual step of closing the dual school building for Thursday so that we can have the schools cleaned and disinfected,” the district posted on Facebook.
