PCPS COVID-19 Alert System Information

Mike Seals - November 8, 2020 9:12 pm

The COVID Alert System Risk Level increased this week from 22.3-Orange Level 1 Moderate Risk to 27.9-Orange Level 2 Moderate Risk +.

Last week, PCPS experienced the highest number of in-school positive cases since school started, after experiencing two record low weeks. There were 15 in-school positive cases that resulted in 7 contact tracing investigations, which means 7 positive cases were infectious while in school.

Most of the in-school positives last were due to exposures to positive cases from gatherings outside of school.  If you attend a group gathering, please practice deliberate distancing of more than 6’ at all times and wear a face covering.  The CDC guidelines for contact tracing are exposure to a positive case for 6’ of less for 15 minutes or more cumulative minutes.

Please help us keep our kids in school by wearing face coverings, watching your distance, washing your hands, avoiding large group gatherings, and staying home if experiencing symptom.
