Number of active COVID-19 cases move Madison Elementary School to Level Two

The Madison Central School District is moving one of its school buildings to Level Two of the district’s Back to School Plan because of the number of active COVID-19 cases in the building.  On Wednesday, Superintendent Joel Jorgenson notified parents that there are now eight active COVID-19 cases in Madison Elementary School so it will now be moving to Level Two, which means that face coverings will be required starting Thursday.  In an e-mail to parents, Jorgenson said that face coverings will be required at the Elementary School building until they drop back below the one-percent level.  

Two more students or staff members at Madison Elementary School had tested positive for COVID-19 as of Wednesday.  Both of the new elementary cases were from the same household.  

Also on Wednesday, the district reported one new positive COVID-19 case each at Madison Middle and High Schools.  There were no close contacts within the school with the Middle School case, but the district is determining any close contacts with the new high school case. Madison Middle School currently has two active cases, while the high school has three.

Lake County added ten additional active COVID-19 cases on Wednesday.  The state Department of Health reported 75 active coronavirus cases in the county yesterday.

Statewide, active cases increased to just more than 72-hundred, with 249 people hospitalized.  Fifteen additional COVID-19 deaths were also reported in the state, bringing the state’s total to 2349 since the start of the pandemic.
