Schools in step with each other during COVID-19

While some school districts in northeastern Wisconsin are taking all of the students to virtual learning due to a spike in COVID-19 cases, schools in Door County continue to work together during these unique times. Administrators for Door County’s public and private schools meet every Thursday with members of the Door County Public Health Department and Door County Medical Center to discuss updates within the community. One of those issues that has crept into mix is contact tracing. The county announced last week it would no longer call close contacts to positive COVID-19 patients due to the current backlog of work. Sturgeon Bay Schools Superintendent Dan Tjernagel says districts have taken a more active role in contact tracing in recent weeks.

Tjernagel added there have been discussions about bringing on a contact tracer for the district who could assist in the county’s efforts when they are not needed for the schools. Gibraltar remains 100 percent virtual until October 14th while the number of active cases and quarantined students vary from district to district.
