FROM STAFF REPORTS
The number of new cases of COVID-19 cases may be declining in Iredell County, but Iredell-Statesville Schools officials are still dealing with the coronavirus in the majority of district schools.
I-SS and the Iredell County Health Department notified parents of positive cases involving staff and students in 19 schools during the week of February 5-11.
Eleven staff members and 29 students tested positive during the week and were in school 48 hours before the onset of symptoms or a positive test, according to the I-SS dashboard.
Only four of the cases were related to community spread in district schools, officials said.

This is Crazy. If the Children and Staff are still getting Covid when they attend School even with the Temperature Checks, Sanitizing, Masks, 6-foot Guidelines, etc. then why are they trying to open school fully for the whole week like this Pandemic just up and disappear? They are not taking the family members of these infected ones into consideration because now it is not only harmless in the schools but also in the homes. We need to rethink our decisions in taking out Virtual Learning as a choice and put our kids’ safety as number one priority.
