COVID-19 Positive Case Notification
November 11, 2020
Dear Maysville parents, staff and community members:
Late this afternoon, we received notification that a Maysville employee has tested positive for COVID-19. While we must protect the privacy of the person involved, we believe it is best to communicate transparently with you so you can make well-informed decisions for your family.
To ensure the safety of all students and staff, the Maysville school district will transition to virtual teaching and learning for all grade levels. The district is challenged with finding enough personnel to cover classes and numerous students are quarantined. In-person learning will resume on Monday, November 30, 2020.
Maysville will continue to clean and disinfect surfaces inside all district schools. As a precaution, both sites will be thoroughly cleaned before the arrival of student’s on Monday, November 30th. With more cases being confirmed across the state and county, it is important to remain vigilant. The CDC recommends the following best practices to help prevent the spread of this global pandemic:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
- Avoid close contact with those who are sick.
- Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your sleeve.
- Avoid touching your eyes, mouth and nose.
- Disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects.
- Stay at home, if possible.
- If you must go out, practice social distancing, leaving at least six feet between you and other people.
- Avoid gatherings that include more than 10 people.
Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough and shortness of breath. If you or any member of your family exhibit these symptoms, you are encouraged to contact your medical provider for advice immediately. Symptoms usually appear 2-14 days after exposure.
