Positive COVID Case
We were notified by a family of a lab-confirmed case of COVID-19 in a member of the Salem community with the exposure date ofWednesday, November 4th. For privacy reasons, we cannot share details about the status of this person. At this time, they have been advised to stay home and away from other people (isolate).A message will be sent via ClassDojo to notify the class who had close contact with the person who has COVID-19. The risk of exposure for other people present in the building on that date is no greater than the risk of contracting the virus in the general community.
If you or your child were not notified that you had close contact with the person, you should still monitor for symptoms of illness, but do not need to stay home unless symptoms develop. If symptoms develop, stay home and consult with your health care provider to determine if medical evaluation is needed.
We are working closely with MDH to monitor the situation.
If you have questions, contact Mr. Klatt.
Thank you to parents for continuing the open communication as we continue to work through this school year. We continue to pray for those who are sick and those who care for the sick knowing our Lord and Savior has us all in his loving hands.
