Health officials have said it’s not unexpected for COVID cases to show up in schools, because the virus is active in the general community.
Terry Adkins, principal at St. Brigid, said several families were alarmed when they saw the incorrect report, because they hadn’t heard any news from the school itself.
“We’re really healthy. We’ve had no cases, no issues. We’re successfully back in class, in-person and doing well,” Adkins said Friday. “We’re having success because of a lot of cooperation from parents, teachers and students. It’s been a real community effort, and I’m glad it’s working out.”
COVID-19 information released by ODH on Thursday said Ohio schools reported 156 student cases and 91 school staff cases from Sept. 7-13. That dashboard will be updated every Thursday.
