Flyer Community —
Happy New Year! As our students return to school today, we felt it was important to update everyone on the latest COVID-19 information.
Wood County last week has seen a 35% increase in COVID-19 cases (and at the same time a 30% drop in hospitalizations).
Wood County last week was averaging 140.5 cases per day.
Wood County last week had 560.32 cases per 100,000, which shows high transmission in the community.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated their isolation and quarantine guidance, later followed by the Ohio Department of Health. The Wood County Health Department has adopted the guidance, so we will continue to follow their lead on all decisions. Use the following links to see the most recent update:
Families and employees are asked to continue to report any diagnosis of COVID-19 and contact with individuals who are positive by contacting the appropriate building secretary. We really need this information to limit the spread on campus. If your kids are sick, please keep them home. If someone in your home tests positive for COVID-19, please keep your student(s) home and contact the appropriate building office.
Students or employees may request a school district-provided mask in all of the offices on campus. We have a limited number of test kits available on campus. Please contact our school nurse, Tonya Dewese at [email protected] if you would like to pick up a test kit. As you can imagine, Mrs. Dewese is swamped with work right now so please give her a little extra time to get back to you if you contact her.
Thank you for your continued patience and flexibility as we start the new year!!
