School COVID Update

Red River Parish’s School Covid Nurse reported to the School Board this month, compared to other districts we are doing well.” 

Paula Clark said new guidelines went into effect within the past month concerning quarantines and mask wearing for school employees.  She said in the event of exposure and close contact with  a person with COVID, the ten day quarantine has been reduced to five days and then wearing a mask for five more days.  Clark added, “if the person is up to date on vaccinations and has no symptoms, they can continue to work with a mask.”

Looking at the numbers, Clark said there are ten people now out on all of the campuses in the parish.  Seven are due to a close contact to someone with COVID and three are due to a positive COVID test.  “It is amazingly low,” added Clark.
