The number of COVID-19 cases this past week does show another slight increase to 56.24  Current projections for next week will show this number will decrease to 52.42.  As you can continue to see in the chart below, the numbers within our district still remain low. 

We continue to see our county number plateauing for a period of time. The county number will continue to go up and down over the next couple of weeks.  We should not see any type of surge any time soon.  With the weather getting better and many more people outside it is projected the numbers will slowly go down over the summer as they did last summer. 

We will be holding a vaccine clinic here on Wednesday, May 5th.  Stearns County Public Health is sponsoring the clinic.  We were informed of this last Thursday and got the information out as quickly as possible.  The deadline passed this morning at 8 a.m. to sign up for the vaccine. We estimated the number of people wanting to get the vaccine from the survey we sent out.  If for some reason demand exceeds supply we can reach out to Stearns County Public Health to see if they can do another clinic. 

As of today we only have 23 days of school left, even less for the Seniors.  Our tents we purchased last year will be going up again to provide more space outside for students as the weather continues to warm.  I would continue to ask all parents to monitor their child(ren) health every day.  If they don’t feel well, keep them home.  If symptoms continue, get them tested.  Let’s hold it together until the end of the year by doing everything we can to keep students in school every day.
