PCPS experienced their highest number of in-school COVID-19 cases last week

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.
