MAGNA/ KEARNS A student who attends the Magna campus of Entheos Academy has tested positive for coronavirus, Salt Lake County Health officials announced Saturday.

Because Entheos Academy in Kearns shares faculty and staff with Magna, school officials are considering both campuses potentially exposed to the virus.

By the direction of officials at the Salt Lake County Health Department, all staff and students will be quarantined at their homes until March 27th.

While in quarantine they have been instructed to monitor themselves for symptoms including cough, fever over 100° F and shortness of breath.
