Iowa City school classroom quarantining after COVID-19 exposure
IOWA CITY, Iowa (KCRG) - Students and staff in a classroom in the Iowa City Community School district are now quarantining for exposure to COVID-19.
A district spokesperson told the Iowa City Press Citizen the exposure happened last week.
According to the district’s data dashboard, there are 68 students and 7 staffers who currently have COVID-19.
109 students and 9 staffers are under quarantine.
This comes after Iowa City schools moved to hybrid learning last month.
The district originally started with online only learning.
It cited dropping COVID-19 positivity rates in Johnson County for its decision to change its model.
The Iowa Department of Public Health says the rate is now at 5 point 2 percent in the county, the sixth lowest in the state.
