Quarantine Time Reduced for Clinton Schools Students, Staff

In accordance with CDC guidance, the DeWitt/Piatt Bi-County Health Department has signed off on a reduced quarantine period for Clinton Schools students and staff.


Superintendent Curt Nettles says the guidance which reduces the 14-day quarantine guidance is another step towards stability in their schedule.



Nettles continues to stress COVID is not spreading in the school setting and has noticed over the course of the year, when they have to send kids home over contact tracing, those students rarely end up sick due to their exposure in the school setting.



Last week was a tough week for the district as they struggled to maintain staffing, however, since then Nettles indicates things got better as students came back to school this week. Additionally, around half of district staff will be taking advantage of getting vaccinated starting Friday.



Nettles estimates about half of their staff population will be getting the vaccine. The COVID situation within the district continues to get better each week. The public can expect an updated report from the district out Friday.
