Five Students and Two Employees Test Positive for COVID-19

October 16, 2020
 
Five students and two Paducah Public Schools employees have tested positive for COVID-19 this week.  Aside from one familial connection, none of the cases are connected or suspected to have originated in the school environment.  Neither of the employees who tested positive returned to school after the break, so there is no concern regarding exposure to other students or employees in those two schools (one at Paducah Tilghman High School and one at Paducah Head Start Preschool).  Similarly, 3 of the 5 positive students did not return to their respective schools after the break (Paducah Tilghman and Morgan Elementary); therefore, no corresponding quarantines of other students or staff resulted from those.  
 
One Paducah Middle School student who tested positive resulted in the quarantine of seven other students due to exposure at the school.  A Paducah Tilghman student who tested positive resulted in the quarantine of three students and one teacher.  
 
Paducah Public Schools?is?following guidance from the Purchase Area Health Department (PAHD) who handled all case investigation and contact tracing?with cooperation from?the school district. The individuals who met the criteria of a close contact have already been contacted by?PAHD?to receive instructions.
