Port Huron Schools report case of coronavirus

By Joseph Hayes

It’s already been a crazy school year. How much more unusual can it get?

We are starting to find out.

On Sunday, Port Huron Schools emailed a letter to parents of children at Keewahdin Elementary School, notifying them of a case of exposure of the coronavirus that had been reported to the school.

The letter stated that St. Clair County Health Department (SCCHD) has identified a confirmed case of coronavirus at Keewahdin Elementary. The letter would go on to say as a result the SCCHD and Port Huron Schools are working closely to identify exposure and prevent further cases. ​

The letter added to protect the community for parents and children to:

● Children and adults should stay home when ill.

● Washing hands often with soap and running warm weather for at least 20 seconds. If a hand washing station is not available, use hand sanitizer properly. Gels, rubs and hand wipes work well against COVID-19 if they contain at least 60% alcohol. Throw wipes in the trash after use.

● Practice good respiratory etiquette, including covering a cough or sneeze.

If your child is identified as a close contact a separate communication will be sent.

For more information, parents can contact SCCHD at (810) 987-5300.

Note: Fort Gratiot Middle School and Port Huron Northern High School have also suspended in-person learning for two weeks.
