A ‘non lubricated condom’ has been found in a US school’s lockers
A non-lubricated condom found in an elementary school lockers is a reminder that condoms are an essential tool for the healthcare workers and teachers who wear them.
The incident occurred on January 27 when a woman found a condom on the floor of a locked classroom at a public high school in Colorado Springs, the Associated Press reported.
School officials quickly found the condom, which was in a white cardboard box, and immediately notified law enforcement.
The woman’s boyfriend told ABC News that he went to the classroom to take his children to their bus stop and was surprised when he saw the condom there.
“I went to my car and I put it in my glove compartment and I said, ‘Is that a condom?'” he told ABC.
“It was really just a big white box.
The teacher was really upset, and I asked her what it was.
She said it was a condom.
I asked, ‘What do you mean by that?'”
He said he did not know whether the condom was a non-latex condom or latex condom with a plastic zipper, and said he has no idea what kind of instructions it was for.
The Associated Press reports that the school’s superintendent called the incident a “very unfortunate incident” and is taking steps to ensure that it doesn’t happen again.
