Positive Covid-19 Case
The District received word on Monday November 2, 2020 of two elementary level staff members and one elementary student testing positive with the COVID-19 virus. In all of these instances the virus was contracted from community or household spread and NOT from contact within the school. All of the close contact students and staff impacted by the positive cases have been notified. As a result of these cases eight additional staff members and 31 students are required to be in quarantine due to close contact.
We were also notified by the Adair County Health Department that three other staff members and 12 students must also be in quarantine because of their close contact with other members of the community who tested positive
The impact of this type of quarantine leads us to again ask that members of both the school and greater Kirksville adult communities mask up and maintain at least 6 feet of space when indoors.
