NASSAU COUNTY, Fla. – With 11 new student cases reported this week, Nassau County school officials said Thursday night that 158 students have been forced to quarantine because of COVID-19 exposure, according School District assistant superintendent.
“This has been the most challenging week,” Superintendent Mark Durham said. “Transmissions are happening outside of the schools.”
It’s the highest number of any week since the school year began.
The “current COVID-19 report” on the school district’s website hasn’t been updated since Nov. 6 and lists just 17 students in quarantine.
Durham also said five staff members are in 14-day quarantine after COVID-19 exposure, according to a report by the Fernandina Beach News Leader said.
Students in quarantine continue their studies through online instruction.
