GE­OR­GIA SCHOOLS GRAP­PLE WITH COVID-19 SPIKE

National Post (National Edition) - - WORLD -

On Wed­nes­day, teach­ers in Ge­or­gia’s largest school district re­turned to el­e­men­tary, mid­dle and high school cam­puses to start in-per­son planning for the fall se­mes­ter.

By the next day, 260 district em­ploy­ees had been barred from en­ter­ing their schools, ei­ther be­cause they tested pos­i­tive for the coro­n­avirus or had been di­rectly ex­posed to some­one who had.

Sloan Roach, spokes­woman for Gwin­nett County Pub­lic Schools, which serves more than 180,000 stu­dents, told the At­lanta Jour­nal Con­sti­tu­tion that most of the cases were tied to com­mu­nity spread, rather than be­ing spread at the schools.
