Beginning this week, the Philomath School District will be posting weekly updates to indicate
positive COVID-19 cases within our schools. A positive case may involve students and/or staff.
Cases are reported when the Benton County Health Department provides confirmation.
In the event of a positive case, individuals directly connected are notified as soon as the district
is made aware. Individual schools will share notification of any positive cases directly with theirstaff and families.
In reviewing information, please remember that the number of positive cases may not equal
the number needing to quarantine. Individuals considered to be ‘in close contact’ are asked to
quarantine for 14 days from the date of exposure.
