Student Brings Syringe To School
A Harper Creek elementary student brought a medical syringe to school, on Wednesday, and multiple children came into contact with it. Four of the students were pricked by the needle and, as a result, the children have been tested for possible exposure to HIV and hepatitis. So far, tests have come back negative.
According to Newschannel 3, the incident took place at Beadle Lake Elementary. A young student brought the syringe from home and shared it in a classroom.
The health department is testing the syringe and feels that it is unlikely that any transmission of HIV or hepatitis took place.
