School Districts in Ingham County Reporting Rise in COVID-19 Cases
The coronavirus pandemic is far from over and all we can do is get vaccinated and follow all CDC regulated guidelines.
Just a few days ago I had to announce on the air that all students at Leslie High School are now required to wear masks due to active COVID-19 cases reported from the Leslie school district.
And it's not just Leslie Public Schools, it's now officially every school district in Ingham County reporting active cases of COVID-19.
According to the Lansing State Journal:
Webberville Community Schools has so far not implemented a mask mandate for students or staff, but included in its communication to parents guidelines from the Ingham County Health Department, including masking, social distancing and hand-washing recommendations.
If we take a look at the Lansing School District and active COVID-19 cases, no reports as of yet regarding students with active COVID-19, but three staff members have COVID-19.
We would like to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but there are too many things getting in the way of that happening, at least for now.
The thing that I don't like to see is the fact that every school district in Ingham County has reported positive COVID-19 cases.
Some of those school districts include: (courtesy of LSJ)
1. Okemos Public Schools. Reporting 14 active cases.
2. Haslett Public Schools. Reporting 8 active cases.
3. Mason Public Schools. Reporting 5 active cases.
4. Williamston Community Schools. Reporting 4 active cases.
All of this has been reported during the first two weeks of school.
The more students who get vaccinated in the near future, the better their chances will be from getting the delta variant or any other COVID-19 variant that comes our way.
Many schools are asking all students to mask up to protect themselves from getting COVID-19.
