9-R Weekly COVID Response Summary - 2.26.21

This week our community continues to remain in yellow on the COVID-19 dial for our region. These fluctuations are the reason the district will not move on its Return to In-Person Learning Matrix until 14 days of steady community transmission rates, as well as personnel availability remains stable. For this week of February 22, 2021, seven (7) cohorts, six (6) at Durango High School and one (1) at Park Elementary, were put into quarantine.

Two Cohorts to Quarantine - 3.2.21

On February 28 and March 2, 2021 respectively, 9-R was notified by San Juan Basin Public Health (SJBPH) that a cohort went into quarantine from Park Elementary due to a positive case of COVID-19. Additionally, a cohort had to quarantine at Fort Lewis Mesa Elementary due to an individual exhibiting severe symptoms of COVID-19. A. The school and the district are working proactively with the SJBPH to make the appropriate notifications and next steps for those who may have been in close contact with this individual.
