For each positive case reported, contact tracing is done in conjunction with Siouxland District Health. A Siouxland District Health official or school official will notify a close contact to explain they may have been exposed to COVID-19, provide information on symptoms, and encourage them to self-quarantine, if needed, to prevent the spread of the disease. View more information about defining close contacts of a COVID-19 positive case.
Only individuals that are identified as close contacts will be notified about positive COVID-19 cases in the District. Appropriate actions will be taken, in accordance with District protocol, to thoroughly clean, sanitize, and disinfect any impacted areas. Classes will continue for those who have not been identified as close contacts, unless announced otherwise.
At times, the number of individuals impacted by COVID-19 may necessitate the District to close a classroom, building section, or entire building. If a closure is announced and a subset of students are moved to emergency response Virtual Learning, then further communication will be shared.
