COVID numbers for district going down

The Marshalltown Community School District confirmed six new cases of COVID-19 among students and employees on Friday:

• Total cases among students: four

• Total cases among staff: two

Compared to previous weekly COVID reports, the amount of cases has been decreasing. On Feb. 5, there were eight confirmed cases. The highest number of cases in a single week for January was 16. In November, the COVID case count peaked with 34 confirmed in a week.

The district started weekly COVID-19 case reports on Sept. 18, in which seven cases were confirmed.

A report on the number of COVID-19 cases within the district is shared weekly on Fridays. Each report shares the total number of new, confirmed cases among students and staff members throughout the district since the time of the previous report.

The weekly COVID-19 reports focus exclusively on new, confirmed cases of COVID-19 since the time of the previous report.

To protect the privacy of students and employees, the reports do not include information regarding any individual person, position or title, classroom or activity, age group, grade level or school building.

The COVID-19 reports are shared with families and staff by email. They are also posted on the district website, as well as MCSD’s Facebook and Twitter pages.

The next report will be released Feb. 19.
