DODSON, Mont. (NMB) – Dodson Public Schools has announced the indefinite cancellation of classes and extracurriculars due to a COVID-19 outbreak.
There have been at least two dozen District-associated COVID-19 cases reported this week, according to Superintendent Gary Weitz. He adds that that number is expected to continue to increase.
The CDC has provided assistance to the District by performing over 125 COVID-19 tests this week. The Phillips County Health Department and the Indian Health Service have been assisting with contact tracing.
This comes as 34 District staff members were given the second dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine earlier this week.
An emergency school board meeting will be held at 11 AM on Saturday morning via ZOOM to determine the next steps the District will take.
