Plymouth reports first ever student virus cases due to school exposure
For the first time since the beginning of the school year the Plymouth school department is reporting two student virus cases due to "in school exposure". The total number of student virus cases is up to 28 from 13 the week before, the weekly peak was 47, for the week ending January 22 (including exposure outside of school).
The number of students quarantined fell week over week down to 65, last week 95 students were quarantined with the virus. Only one student is currently quarantined due to in school exposure, last week 16 students.
Elementary students are scheduled to return to 5 day week in person class on March 29th and middle school April 12th. The school committee will meet on March 29th to once again consider sending high school students to in person class 5 days a week. The committee defeated a similar motion Monday.
