This is an important message from Kurt Lindau the Superintendent of the Lake Holcombe School District.
A case of COVID-19 has been reported in the Lake Holcombe School District.
The students and staff who interacted closely with the individual within the school district were/will be contacted by district staff and/or Chippewa County Public Health Department. The individuals who has tested positive will be excluded from school until he/she have been determined to be no longer infectious by their local health department. Close contacts, determined by local health departments and school district staff, will be excluded from school for 14 days from their last date of exposure to the positive individuals and will be monitored for symptoms by their local health department.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a virus that is spread even before individuals show symptoms. It spreads from person to person through droplets created when we cough, sneeze, talk, sing or laugh. Thus, it is ever important for all students, family members, and staff members to closely watch for symptoms that are outside of their “normal,” and to stay home if they are ill. If symptoms occur, please contact your medical provider to request testing.
Please remember to slow the spread of COVID-19:
Stay home when ill.
Wear a face covering when in public if physically able.
Wash hands frequently with soap and water. Use hand sanitizer if soap and water are unavailable.
Clean frequently touched surfaces, such as doorknobs, tables, etc.
Limit unnecessary travel, events, or large gatherings.
We all need to continue to do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19, and to keep our students and staff members safe.
Thank you,
Kurt Lindau
