SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Bedford County Schools Superintendent Don Embry said the district has had "several" COVID-19 cases among teachers and students.
While Embry did not report an exact number of cases within the district, he said there has not been a widespread number of cases.
Teachers and administrative staff members at Liberty School and Shelbyville Central High School are quarantining in their homes due to close contact with a person who tested positive. Embry said a couple of employees at each school have tested positive for the virus. He added that some staff members are self-isolating due to exposure outside of the school system.
In a letter to parents, Embry said there are isolated cases among students at each school. Students who came in close contact with those who tested positive will also be quarantining.
