Eleven confirmed positive Covid-19 tests results, school officials say not transmitted at school


DEL NORTE COUNTY, Calif. (KIEM)-There has been an uptick in the number of positive COVID-19 test results these past few weeks among students and staff within the Del Norte County Unified School District.

School officials say although positive tests results have increased from a couple of cases, up to 11 across the district, it is not considered an outbreak.

That number represents only a quarter of 1% of all students and staff.

As of Monday (03/22) Superintendent Jeff Harris says positive cases in students have not been linked to school transmission.

The current confirmed active cases include seven students and two staff members from Del Norte High School, and a staff member from Joe Hamilton and Mary Peacock Elementary Schools.

Director of Grants and Community Engagement Michael Hawkins with DNUSD says they urge students and staff to continue to practice social distancing and wash or sanitize hands often.

 “We are absolutely concerned, but right now, by state guidelines we’re nowhere near having to close our schools,” he said.  “We don’t have an outbreak by definition and we are only a quarter of one percent of students infected when five percent is required for school closure.”
