Continuing COVID-19 Reporting

Contact your student’s school - even when in Distance Learning - if your student is diagnosed with COVID-19
Posted on 11/30/2020
COVID-19 UpdatesAt SouthWest Metro Intermediate District, our goal is to provide as much in-person learning time as possible. We need our school community to work together toward this goal and help us stop the spread of COVID-19 so students can get back into the classroom.

CONTACT YOUR SCHOOL IF YOUR CHILD CONTRACTS COVID-19
SWMetro continues to track lab-confirmed cases of COVID-19 amongst students and staff. It is important to contact your student’s school - even while in Distance Learning - if your student is diagnosed with COVID-19. Doing this will allow us to continue to look at our local district data and not have to rely solely on county COVID-19 case rates when determining learning models.

SWMETRO FAMILY COMMUNICATION
Please note that while SWMetro is in Distance Learning, we will only be notifying families if a positive case has been reported to us while a staff member or student has been present in one of our buildings. For privacy reasons, we will not share details about individual cases.

NO-COST, AT-HOME COVID-19 TESTING INFORMATION
The MN Department of Health is promoting at-home COVID-19 saliva testing for any person who wants to be tested, with or without symptoms, at no cost. This saliva test is just as accurate as the nasal swab test and is available at no cost for every Minnesotan, whether or not you have insurance. More information is available on the Minnesota Department of Health’s website, including information on how to order a test.

REMAIN VIGILANT TO REDUCE SPREAD OF COVID-19
Please remember to wear your mask, practice social distancing, wash your hands, cover coughs/sneezes, and keep your in-person contacts limited to your immediate family. Routine healthcare visits, immunizations, and well-child visits continue to be essential during this time. Contact your student’s primary healthcare provider with any questions or concerns.
