School Street

Perhaps I am missing something here, but this statement seems incorrect:

A school official said due to the federal HIPAA Privacy Rule, they could not identify the student. HIPAA stands for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.

The student came from the Kilpatrick Elementary Health, Science and Wellness Magnet School, but unless there is something more going on than the school name, I doubt that they are a covered entity.
At the same time, the Arkansas Department of Health issued this less than enlightening statement:

”We investigate any reportable infectious disease in the state that is contagious,“ said Ann Wright, spokeswoman with the ADH.

See if you can figure it out. The full story is here.
