In a statement Sunday afternoon, officials said the guard last worked March 6 near Yellowstone Avenue and Sequoia Drive, steps from Rancho Milpitas Middle School and John Sinnott Elementary School.

The guard was recently admitted to an area hospital. Officials said they did not know how the guard, who they did not identify, was infected.

“The City of Milpitas is committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of residents and employees,” the statement read in part, stressing officials’ reliance on county, state and federal authorities for planning and information.

“This is an incredibly trying and stressful time for our entire community, but we are in this together, and together we will get through it.”
