Union Public Schools provides daily COVID-19 case counts among it's staff and student body.
On the first day of in-person school at Union last week 10 students were reported COVID-positive by their parents and 25 were in quarantine because of close contact. Since then 3 and staff members have tested positive as well with 101 total in quarantine.
“This is a great reminder to parents, teachers, staff and students that we need to continue to be vigilant in monitoring for COVID-like symptoms,” said Superintendent Dr. Kirt Hartzler. “Students need to be kept home if they have a fever or other symptoms, or if anyone in their household has had a possible exposure to COVID-19 or is being tested. That’s the only way we can keep students safe and continue with in-person learning. Everyone needs to continue to mask up, follow physical distancing guidelines, and wash hands frequently.”
