CC School District announces confirmed case of COVID-19
The Carson City School District reported its first positive COVID-19 case for the school district. The infected person works in the transportation department, which includes school buses. The district is working with Carson City Health and Human Services on contact tracing, but no other employees were identified as close contacts. The district is confident in the contact tracing process and, as a result, anticipates a very small number of individuals to be excluded from school for the 14-day isolation period. School officials say that “Students excluded from school will be provided distance learning opportunities by their classroom teacher.” The news release did not indicate the number of students who will be undergoing 14 days of isolation away from school.
School officials say “Due to privacy laws, no other information will be released about the positive case or those who will be excluded from school. We will continue to follow the enhanced cleaning protocol in our schools per Carson City Health and Human Services guidelines and the Centers for Disease Control guidelines.”
