Eastbrook Community Schools was informed on Oct. 17th, that two staff members at Eastbrook JH tested positive for COVID-19.  The staff were last in the building on Oct. 14th and Oct. 15th.
In connection with these positive tests, 9 individuals were determined to be a school-related close contact and were informed and instructed to quarantine.
If you have not been contacted, you were not identified as a close contact on a school campus, bus, and/or during a school activity.
Close contact is defined by health officials as being within 6 feet for more than 15 minutes. Eastbrook Community Schools uses class, bus, and lunchroom seating charts and other information in its contact tracing process. Health officials advise that contact tracing should focus on the 48 hours prior to the positive test.
We will continue to work closely with the Grant County Health Department to monitor, verify, and communicate as needed.
