December 22, 2020 Dear Parents/Guardians: Today we were informed that a student at USA Middle School tested positive for COVID-19. The District is coordinating closely with the Tuscola County Health Department to assure our community's health and safety. We completed preliminary contact tracing this afternoon and notified families of all who were in close contact with instruction to quarantine. We will finalize our investigation tomorrow with the assistance of the Tuscola County Health Department to assure that all close contacts have been identified. If you have not been contacted, your child is not required to quarantine. Our staff is working diligently to implement precautions that will prevent the introduction and spread of viruses and other germs. This includes daily health screening, cleaning frequently touched surfaces multiple times daily, and nightly cleaning of all classrooms, restrooms, and any other areas used by students. Recently we added the application of a safe but effective anti-viral “fog” in classrooms every evening. We understand the level of concern regarding COVID-19. We encourage parents and students to continue following the public health recommendations: • Staying home when you are sick • Practice the 3 Ws: Wash your hands (with soap and water for at least 20 seconds) Wear a mask Watch your distance • Covering coughs and sneezes and properly disposing of tissues • Continue to socialize responsibly – limit gatherings outside your household • Continuing to monitor your health for symptoms We appreciate your support and cooperation. You can assist us by remaining vigilant but sensible in your approach to dealing with this health concern. Should you have any questions about this situation, please feel free to contact me at 989-883-2360 or by email at riersong@think-usa.org. Educationally yours, George Rierson, Superintendent Unionville-Sebewaing Area School District

The following notice was sent to parents on December 9, 2020: Today we were informed that a staff member at the Middle School/High School received a positive test for COVID-19. In an unrelated case, we learned that a student at the elementary school also tested positive. The District is coordinating closely with the Tuscola and Huron County Health Department to assure our community's health and safety. We performed contact tracing with the assistance of the health department and determined that there were no students in close contact with the staff member while they were contagious. Fortunately, no students will be required to quarantine as our mitigation efforts include avoiding close contact between staff and students. Contact tracing at the elementary school resulted in a cohort group of 12 children being placed in quarantine. All families impacted by the situation have been contacted. If you have not been contacted, there are no additional measures necessary. We continue to take daily precautions to prevent the introduction and spread of viruses and other germs. This includes cleaning frequently touched surfaces multiple times daily and nightly cleaning of all classrooms, restrooms, and any other areas used by students. Recently we added the application of a safe but effective anti-viral “fog” in classrooms every evening.
