California School District Fires Employee Seen In Viral Video Deliberately Coughing On Baby




A woman has lost her job at a California school district after police said she deliberately coughed on a mother and her 1-year-old baby during a dispute about social distancing at a local Yogurtland, an interaction that was caught on camera and went viral.

The Oak Grove School District said in a statement over the weekend that the woman alleged to have engaged in the conduct is no longer an employee of the district.



“The Oak Grove School District’s highest priority is the safety of our students and the well-being of all of the children in the community we serve,” the district said. “We do not tolerate conduct from any employee that compromises any child’s safety.”

Last month, San Jose police said they were looking for a woman accused of deliberately coughing on another woman and her 1-year-old baby at a local Yogurtland store.

The woman was identified as a white female in her 60s.




She was seen on video coughing on the woman and her baby, who was in a stroller, after she got upset that the other woman was not maintaining proper social distancing, police said at the time.

Police also released surveillance video footage of the incident that appeared to show the woman taking off her mask and coughing toward the woman and the stroller.
