The Livingston County Department of Health (LCDOH) conducted contact tracing and recommended a 14-day precautionary quarantine for staff and students involved with the employee.

As a result, impacted classes will be operating remotely for the next two weeks.

In an unrelated incident, an employee at the middle school spent time with a family member who recently tested positive for COVID-19.

The employee was sent home. 

The LCDOH said no further actions were necessary, but out of an abundance of caution, some classes have been temporarily relocated so that classrooms can be sanitized.
