U.S. Representative Dusty Johnson visited Madison on Monday to visit with Madison Central School officials and find out how the district is preparing for the return of students this week amidst the coronavirus pandemic. Johnson toured some of the school facilities and talked with faculty and administrators.
Johnson talked about some of the mitigation measures the school district has taken.
Johnson said he has been visiting several schools and is finding that school leaders know the value of in-person education and are making sure that everything is as safe as possible for students and staff.
While in Madison Monday, Representative Johnson also visited Madison Regional Health System.
He said that we are far from being out of the woods with the coronavirus, but he said that everyone needs to keep doing their part.
Johnson said he will be returning to Washington, D.C. later this week to do more work on another COVID-19 relief bill and other issues.
