Dr. Janette Nesheiwat weighs in on Biden’s coronavirus strategy on ‘America’s Newsroom.’

A Houston-area mother whose child previously tested positive for COVID-19 is facing charges after the teenager was found in the trunk of her car at a drive-thru testing site.

Sarah Beam, 42, who is a teacher for the Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District, is charged with endangering a child, Fox Affiliate, KRPC-TV reported.  

Fox News has reached out to the Harris County District Attorney’s Office. 

Roane General Hospital nurse Chania Batten is shown at a drive-thru COVID-19 vaccination clinic Tuesday, Dec. 21, 2021, in Spencer, W.Va. A Texas woman is facing child endangerment charges after her teenage child who tested positive for COVID was found in the trunk of her car at a testing site. 

The incident occurred at a testing site in northwest Harris County. When a district police officer heard a noise coming from the trunk of Beam’s vehicle, the child was discovered inside. 

“CFPD was alerted that a child was in the trunk of a car at a drive-thru COVID-19 testing site earlier this week,” a Cy-Fair ISD statement to Fox News said. “Law enforcement conducted a full investigation, resulting in a warrant for arrest.”

The child was not harmed, officials said. Beam allegedly said the child had previously child tested positive for COVID and didn’t want to expose them to anyone else.

She is a teacher with the district and has been placed on administrative leave, the district told Fox News.
