MILL HALL — There are eight active cases of COVID-19 in the Keystone Central School District, according to an email sent to parents and families on Friday afternoon.
According to KCSD superintendent Jacquelyn Martin, the eight cases break down like this: One active case among staff and seven among students across three different schools.
“I want to commend our staff and students for their vigilance in following the safety guidelines and keeping pandemic contacts to a minimum,” Martin said in the email. “Keep up your efforts in following the safety guidelines to assist us in keeping our schools open.”
Martin asked that parents report any known cases to the appropriate building principal and follow social distancing guidelines. If a student has been exposed to anyone with COVID-19 or they exhibit any symptoms of COVID-19, they should be kept home from school, Martin said.
The level of community spread in the district continues to be substantial, Martin said.
