USD 380 has been notified by the Nemaha County Health Department that a student at Centralia School has tested positive for COVID-19. Per our established protocol, we have temporarily closed off all areas of the building that the individual used in the past several days so that we can thoroughly clean and disinfect the spaces. We will take the steps necessary to protect the health of our students and staff. The individual who has tested positive for COVID-19 will not be allowed to return to school for at least 14 days. Close contacts have been contacted by the County Health Department. Classes will resume on September 28th.
The symptoms of COVID-19 are similar to the regular seasonal influenza and include fever, coughing, and shortness of breath. Some have reported additional symptoms, such as a runny nose, sore throat, nausea, lethargy, lack of appetite, vomiting, and diarrhea. Individuals who need medical care should call their medical provider to report their illness prior to seeking care at a clinic, physician’s office, or hospital. Parents of students exhibiting flu-like symptoms or staff exhibiting flu-like symptoms are asked to contact a school nurse, local health authorities or the County Department of Health. We are closely monitoring this situation and will provide you with updates as we know more. If you have questions, please contact Matt Rogers at 785-382-6216 or email@example.com.
