Some students at Glenwood Springs Middle School are transitioning to remote learning after an individual displayed symptoms of Covid-19.

In a news release Friday afternoon, the Roaring Fork School District said they have been working with Garfield County Public Health on contact tracing and have “contacted all students and staff who have been exposed.”

The 52 students who were exposed will stay home and quarantine for two weeks.

“Because the individual with symptoms consistent with Covid-19 was last at school on Monday, Oct. 26, those quarantining will be able to return to school on Monday, Nov. 9,” the release states.

In-person classes will continue for those who were not exposed, and the affected areas will be “deep cleared and disinfected prior to the return of non-impacted students and staff.”
