CHICAGO (AP) — A woman who tested positive for COVID-19 after taking a cruise last month worked at a Chicago public school for days before seeking medical attention. Illinois Department of Public Health officials say the woman in her 50s worked as a special education classroom assistant at Vaughn Occupational High School after being a passenger on the Grand Princess cruise ship that docked in San Francisco following a February cruise. Officials say the woman returned to work February 25 and her last day at work was on March 2. School officials say classes at Vaughn Occupational will be canceled next week.
