Taylorville High School Teacher & Student Test Positive For COVID; No Further Quarantines Needed

Regional Radio News has been notified by the Taylorville School District of another teacher from Taylorville High School who has tested positive for COVID-19. The employee is currently quarantined, and the School District is working with the Christian County Health Department along with the Regional Office of Education to keep them up to date on the positive test result. The employee was last on campus Thursday, October 8th.


Also, a student who was in attendance at the Taylorville High School Band program on October 7th, tested positive over the Holiday weekend for COVID. The district was made aware of the test result by the Christian County Health Department. Since the district was following all health check protocols including outdoor spacing, masks, and social distancing, the Health Department determined there was no need for any further quarantine of other students. This positive case is not linked to the other two positive staff cases at the High School. 


Contact tracing is continuing, but there are no additional exposures at this time. Deep cleaning and sanitation continue with areas that the staff member used heavily focused on. The School District encourages everyone to maintain safe social distances, wear masks, and wash hands. Continue to incorporate healthy habits to ensure wellness. For more information, please contact the School District at 824-4951.
