2 Fulton County schools switching to remote learning after positive COVID-19 cases

FULTON COUNTY, Ga. — Students who attend Centennial High School and North Springs High School in Fulton County will be switching to remote learning on Monday.

Fulton County Schools issued a tweet at 8:30 p.m. stating the schools met the district’s Level 1 criteria as part of its closing matrix.

The district announced it anticipates in-person learning to resume on Tuesday. However, individuals who are identified through the contact tracing process will be required to quarantine longer and will be notified directly.

Here are the steps officials take: They isolate those exposed, they investigate, which is the contact tracing, and then they disinfect the schools, which is what’s happening today.

If three or more people in the schools test positive for coronavirus, that would bring the schools to a level 2. Anything more than that would be a level 3 outbreak.

The district will also notify the school community if any additional steps need to be taken.
