High School Student in La Plata R-III School District Tests Positive for COVID-19

The Macon County Health Department is in the process of contacting tracing after a High School student in the La Plata R-III School District tested positive for COVID-19. The district learned of the positive test on Sunday and was asked to compile a list of students and staff who were within 6 feet of the positive student for at least 15 minutes. The health department is contacting those on the list as they will be required to quarantine for 14 days from contact. During quarantine, those students will be using virtual learning.
