Two Sussex Tech staffers positive for COVID-19
Two staff members at Sussex County Vocational Technical School District have tested positive for COVID-19, the district announced Oct. 9.
According to district spokesman Dan Shortridge, the staff members followed proper social distancing and mask-wearing protocols when on campus.
People who were in contact with the affected staff members have been notified.
Sussex Tech is following a "modified remote learning" plan this year, with all students learning virtually. Teachers are working in-school and have the option to bring in small groups when they feel it's warranted.
As a precaution, the Georgetown campus will be closed Oct. 12 and 13 for a deep cleaning, and reopen Wednesday, Oct. 14. Classes and meetings will continue to be held remotely during that time.
