The Logan-Magnolia School District has reported their first positive COVID-19 case.
While there have been students and staff in quarantine, up until today Superintendent Tom Ridder said the District has been lucky to not have had any.
This first case is a high school staff member, according to Ridder. The District has been in close contact with the Harrison County Home & Public Health (HCH&PH) office since then.
As for the tracing, the School has been in touch with those who were in close contact with the individual.
However, they are not being quarantined at this time because the individual has been wearing a mask. This was per the recommendation of the HCH&PH, Ridder said.
