Martin County West Jr/Sr High announces positive COVID case

Tue 11-17-2020

The Martin County West School District has been notified by the MN Dept of Health of a lab confirmed case of COVID-19 in member of the MCW Jr/SR High School community.

The school worked with MDH to identify those who had close contact, and they have been notified individually.  It was stated that the risk of exposure for other individuals present in the building is not greater than the risk of contracting the virus in the general community.  Those not identified to have close contact are still asked to monitor for symptoms of illness, but they do not need to stay home unless symptoms develop.

The school asks the community to continue wearing a face covering when it’s hard to stay 6ft away from people, wash your hands, clean commonly touched surfaces and to stay home if you are sick.
