A staff member of the Marceline R-5 School District tested positive for COVID-19.
Superintendent Brian Sherrow wrote in a letter that the person and his or her immediate household members are self-isolating as recommended by the Linn County Health Department. The health department is contact tracing and has determined no students of Marceline R-5 were at high risk of exposure. No students will be required to self-isolate.
Anyone experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 is advised to contact the health department or a health care provider. Sherrow says the district will continue to ensure the safety of students and staff as it implements its plan for the start of the school year.
