Madison High School closed; 2 positive COVID cases, 250 in quarantine – Cleveland, Ohio

Cleveland, Ohio 2021-09-03 17:09:31 –

Madison, Ohio – Madison High School will reopen on Tuesday after two positive COVIDs have led to the quarantine of more than 200 people.

“In high school, children move around a lot and have different classes, so they have different levels of contact,” said Angela Smith. “If we had two students, it could affect a significant number of people, which would affect 250 students.”

According to Smith, a Varsity football game against Lake County’s Perry Local School is planned tonight as most players haven’t been in contact with students who tested positive.

According to Perry’s athletic director, TJ Rockwell, people isolated from either side will not participate in or participate in tonight’s game.

“These 250s have the option to take today if the COVID test returns negative. We may come back on Tuesday,” Smith said. “If the time of quarantine and actual exposure are not the cause, their quarantine will take place next Thursday.”

At Madison Local School, Smith recommends, but masks are optional.

Shawn Douglas, chairman of the Madison Board of Education, said in June he unanimously approved a district reopening plan that included making masks an option.

The district has no plans to vote for Maskman Date at a meeting later this month, Douglas said, but that could change.

“I don’t think anyone likes to wear a mask, but for now, that’s what it takes to keep students safe,” Smith said. “I recommend sending students to school with masks so that all families can keep these doors open.”

The school will be cleaned in preparation for the student’s return next week.
