Clinton Schools Face Tough COVID Picture; Vaccine for Staff on Horizon

Hanging by a thread while trying to keep things in-person is the situation facing Clinton Schools as it relates to COVID.


At the virtual Clinton Board of Education meeting, Clinton Schools Superintendent Curt Nettles did not paint a pretty picture as it relates to COVID among students and staff. Staff continues to be the biggest issue on his radar right now. 



According to Nettles, the situation is not just bad at Clinton High School. He explains they are beginning to be short on bus drivers and are taking some measures to make things work.



While things are not looking good at this moment, Nettles continues to be encouraged and emphasizes to the community, COVID is not spreading in their schools.



January 29, the staff of Clinton Schools can begin being inoculated. Nettles indicates they are working with the DeWitt/Piatt Bi-County Health Department to get their staff the vaccine.



Hear from Nettles on the WHOW Morning Show Wednesday at approximately 8:30 am.
