2 Teachers At JPS Test Positive For COVID-19

The Jamestown Public Schools District said it has been notified that two individuals — a teacher at Persell Middle School and a teacher at Ring Elementary School — have tested positive for COVID-19. Both were last in school Friday, and according to the district, there is no known connection between the cases.

“We continue to stress the importance of social distancing, face masks, and frequent hand washing both at school and at home,” said JPS Superintendent Dr. Kevin Whitaker. “If you or your family members experience any COVID-19 symptoms, please stay home and contact your health provider for a diagnosis. We must continue to work together to keep our community safe and well.”
