A brief COVID-19 update was made at the Oak Hill Board of Education meeting, which took place on Wednesday, Jan. 12.

Superintendent Dr. Marci Shepard revealed that COVID protocols have been updated so that individuals who have positive COVID tests are required to quarantine for five days and wear masks an additional five days afterwards.

Dr. Shepard stated that the school was anticipating a spike in cases over Christmas break, but to her and the Board’s shock, the attendance rates were better than the previous year’s and 2019’s pre-COVID.
