MYRTLE CREEK, Ore. – A student at South Umpqua High School has tested positive for COVID-19, district officials say.

The school is working with the Douglas Public Health Network to respond to the situation.

Officials said they notified staff as well as parents of children in the same cohort as the student. People who had contact with the student have been asked to quarantine for two weeks and monitor for symptoms. Students who are quarantining will be contacted by local public health officials daily for monitoring.

Meanwhile, the district said they are continuing to follow guidelines such as handwashing, physical distancing as much as possible, requiring masks and upholding cleaning protocols.

In-person learning will resume for those that are not under quarantine.
