Message from Sedalia 200 regarding COVID-19 test

Sedalia School District 200 has been informed that a member of the Smith-Cotton Junior High School football program has tested positive for COVID-19. That person is in quarantine at home. The 33 people with whom they were close contacts also will quarantine for the required period of time as outlined by the Pettis County Health Center; they will monitor any symptoms should they occur.
The district has reported these cases to the Pettis County Health Center, as required by current Missouri law.
With our mandatory mask protocol and social distancing guidelines, additional quarantines are not required at this time.
The district has launched a COVID-19 dashboard to track active positive cases and quarantines among students and staff members. The dashboard will be updated daily; each Monday, district parents, staff members and local media will receive an email roundup of the previous week’s cases. The dashboard can be accessed from the link at the top of the home page.
