COVID-19 Weekly Update 1/24

Theron Luett, News-Brief-Editor

Currently, 112 staff members and students in the Johnston Community district have tested positive for COVID-19. The school nurse protocol for testing positive for COVID-19, states that your student’s principal or school nurse should be notified immediately. The school nurse will then let you know how long your student should be quarantined before coming back to school.

By following these guidelines, the risk of spreading infection is less likely. For information regarding weekly positive COVID-19 updates in Johnston schools, visit For information on free COVID testing sights and testing kits, go to
