Latest News as of March 18
The Washington Ozaukee Public Health Department (WOPHD) reported a positive case of COVID-19 . On March 17, the State of WI issued a statewide ban on all mass gatherings of 10 or more people to mitigate the spread of the virus. These measures are intended to help " flatten the curve " and reduce the spread of COVID-19 in a given timeframe.  This will help ease the burden on the healthcare system.

Social Distancing
The Washington Ozaukee Public Health Departments have asked for our assistance in sharing information regarding best practice during school closure. The impact of a single case in any one school in a district is extremely significant, hence our decision to proactively close schools. If one student or staff member becomes infected, everyone who was in close contact will need to be quarantined for 14 days. Regarding community spread, the CDC and public health officials suggest a heightened monitoring over the next 14 days for any symptoms related to COVID-19. Symptoms include:
  • mild to severe respiratory symptoms including a dry cough
  • fever
  • shortness of breath
Should your child exhibit any of these symptoms, contact your health provider and proactively take necessary steps to isolate yourself or your family. Close contacts include anyone who spends time, within six feet, of the positive case. When considering the proximity of a school environment, the contacts and exposures grow exponentially, and quickly. We are supporting closures because there is community transmission. If we all practice social distancing, we will return to school more quickly. Our goal is to reduce the spread of the virus and return to school and business as usual. We recommend you follow the CDC and Public Health Department guidelines regarding social distancing and group size for gathering.
