BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- The Warren County Public School District is taking immediate action after officials learned that an employee may have been exposed to the coronavirus.

According to a statement from the district, the employee has a family member who tested positive for COVID-19. The employee has not tested positive and is not experiencing any symptoms. The district said the employee is now in self-quarantine.
