Brown Co schools report additional COVID cases

(KNZA)--Additional positive cases of COVID-19 are being reported at Hiawatha and Horton schools.

Hiawatha USD 415 Superintendent Lonnie Moser, in a release, said the district was notified late Tuesday afternoon that a second staff member at the Hiawatha Elementary School has tested positive for the virus.  The first case at the school was reported Monday.

Per the district's established protocol, Moser said they have cleaned and disinfected all areas of the building the individuals used.

The two staff members will not be allowed to return to school for at least 10 days from the on-set of symptoms.

Moser said contact tracing is in progress. Individuals and families will be notified if they are directly impacted.  As a precautionary measure, Hiawatha Elementary School sent home learning materials and devices Tuesday with all students in one particular grade level. 

The district reported last week that a staff member at the Hiawatha Middle School had tested positive for COVID-19.

South Brown County USD 430 on Monday reported two additional positive cases.

In a release, Superintendent Jason Cline said they include a student at Horton High School and staff member who works in the district.

Both individuals will not be allowed to return to school for at least 10 days.

Last week, a staff member at Horton High School tested positive for COVID-19.

As of Monday, Brown County has seen 105 positive cases of COVID-19 since the pandemic began. Three remain hospitalized. 84 have recovered, with three deaths reported.
