Today marks the end of the third week since Glynn County School reopened after a two-week shut down to try to get a handle on the spread of SARS-CoV2. The school system returned with some schools still in condition ‘yellow,” which meant elevated measures including mandatory mask-wearing, but two weeks ago, the system reported all schools in the green. Students and faculty are encouraged but not required to wear masks when the schools are in “green” and very few did.
Three weeks since the return of in-person schooling and two weeks since the masks were removed, all schools report “green” conditions still. CB Greer, Oglethorpe Point, St. Simons Elementary, and Jane Macon all report zero cases of COVID-19 in their schools, while Glynn Academy, Burroughs-Mollette, Glendale, Goodyear, Satilla Marsh, and Sterling Elementary all report only one case, among staff and students.
‘The school with the highest percentage of cases is Risley, with 0.42% of staff and students reporting infections, which equates to 3 out of 710 students and staff members.The system is showing 0.18% of staff and students reporting currently COVID positive.
