Westlake Village Mayor Kelly Honig announced Thursday evening that the live-in nanny who cares for a student at White Oak Elementary School has tested positive for COVID-19.
The testing took place this week, the mayor said. It is believed to be the first confirmed case of the virus in the Conejo Valley.
“The family is currently in isolation and they have contacted everyone the student was in contact with outside of the school. The (Las Virgenes) school district has notified student families of the positive test,” Honig said in an emergency notice posted on the city’s website.
The announcement comes on the heels of a Thursday announcement by both Governor Gavin Newsom and Los Angeles County calling for all residents to remain at home and leave only for “essentials.”
The stay-at-home order does not apply to workers in certain industries such as food service, healthcare, financial and media. All non-essential retail stores are closed. Restaurant take-out is still permissible.
The L.A. County “Safer at Home” order will last for one month and possibly longer, officials said.
