Kiel schools have 7 positive COVID cases

As of Monday, Sept. 21, the Kiel Area School District had seven positive COVID-19 cases including one staff member and six students.

Currently 92 students are in quarantine—40 in the High School, 46 in the Middle School, and six in the Elementary School. The quarantined students are learning virtually at home during their quarantine period.

District Administrator Dr. Brad Ebert said that the Manitowoc County Health Department is way behind on contact tracing and informing those affected. With the influx of cases, the department does not have enough staff to keep up with notifying people. School staff members have been asked to help notify the community and those affected by the positive cases.
