Christian County Schools See Decrease in Active COVID-19 Cases

The Christian County Public School District is seeing improvement concerning active COVID-19 cases and quarantines this week.

Superintendent Chris Bentzel said Tuesday afternoon; there were 12 active in-person student cases and 13 active in-person teacher and staff cases. Also, there was 81 school acquired close contact student quarantines, down nearly 60-percent from Thursday.

He added Millbrooke Elementary resumed in-person classes this week and only had one staff member test positive this week, but that person had not been in the school since the closure.

Bentzel said they are continuing their postponement of extracurricular and athletic activities and, at this time, will allow them to resume Monday, November 23.


He added they would continue the same arrangement for students in middle and high schools attending in-person classes until case numbers go down.


During the briefing with area media members Tuesday, Bentzel mentioned the district is doing their own contact tracing. Still, other activities are occurring in conjunction with the Christian County Health Department.


If anyone is identified as a close contact to a positive COVID-19 case in the district, the school sends home a letter.


Students in the Christian County Public School system are off Wednesday for Veterans Day; they will resume classwork Thursday, Friday, and all week next week. Students will not attend classes Wednesday through Friday, November 25 to 27, for Thanksgiving Break.
