The Norfolk Public Schools has informed parents that one of its teachers has been sent home after being exposed to COVID-19:
As you have likely heard, a student in Crofton has tested positive for COVID-19 (Coronavirus). The student was in the Crofton section/crowd at the Girls State Basketball Game last week. The amount of exposure that spectators had as a result is unknown. However, one of our Norfolk Senior High School teachers was in the Crofton crowd. Out of an abundance of caution, we have asked this teacher to stay home until she receives further direction from the Elkhorn Logan Valley Public Health Department. We have also moved her classes to a different location within the high school until we are able to thoroughly disinfect her classroom. I have visited with officials at the Elkhorn Logan Valley Public Health Department and they have reassured me that no further actions are needed at this time. If you have any concerns, and would like to discuss this further, please do not hesitate to contact your building principal.
