COVID continues in local schools

The positive coronavirus tests continue to come in at area schools but, so far, they’re still isolated.

Oct. 20, the school district learned that one of the remote-learning high school students had tested positive.

“This student does not come in to the buildings,” Principal Henry Muren told families, both in a district all-call and in a Facebook post.

That notification followed by one day notice that a high school student who does attend in person had tested positive. However, this kid had gotten the positive result while out and the parents kept the student home.

Norton Schools announced Oct. 21 that a student or staff member, the notice didn’t specify which, that is not in one of the buildings had gotten a positive test result.

Both districts urged students and staff to mask up, wash hands often and stay home if they have any symptoms or know they’ve been exposed.

    Just heard all of the officials, Police and EMS employees at a certain township/city who tested positive were all negative few days later. And the state has up to 6 months to report and positive tests and 75% were false positives. So the numbers you see daily and are referred to as SPIKE could of been from April. These numbers are fudged. GOV-ID19
