Correction: No positive COVID-19 case in St. Johns County school system

Students return to class in St. Johns County (Copyright 2020 by WJXT News4Jax - All rights reserved.)

ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. – Despite a previous report from News4Jax, there has been no reported COVID-19 case in St. Johns County schools.

Due to an editorial error, News4Jax incorrectly reported that the district informed parents about a positive case on the first day of class on Monday.

News4Jax received a sample letter that would be sent to parents in the event of a positive case and misinterpreted the information.

We regret the error.

This correction replaces a previous story published by News4Jax.
