MUSKOGEE, Okla. - Muskogee Public Schools in a move to remain transparent with its families, staff, and stakeholders will provide a weekly update regarding COVID-19 positive tests associated with the district. This update covers the week of August 31- Sept. 7, 2020.
The district had one positive COVID-19 test which was previously reported on Friday. That positive test was a certified staff member at Pershing Elementary.
In each positive case, the program area director or the supervisor was notified of the positive COVID-19 test and the appropriate protocols were followed. These individuals have began quarantine for 10 days and are following the Muskogee County Health Department guidelines. All of these individuals will be required to provide a negative COVID-19 test before returning.
If any student/staff member is having symptoms that prompt him or her to get a COVID-19 test, that individual should follow CDC guidelines of 10-day quarantine and 48-hour symptom-free protocol from the onset of symptoms or positive test.
