Meridian Community,

We are finally starting to see some decrease in our numbers, although they remain quite high.

Total current number of positive students: 26 (5 at HES, 6 at MC, 9 at MJH, 6 at SVHS)

Total number of students positive (or presumed positive) since the beginning of school: 390

Students in Test-To-Stay Program Currently: 28

Students in Quarantine Currently: 70

Our current data (for our three primary zip codes, not our schools) is below and available for reference (and updated daily) here:

·7-day positivity rate – 18.5%

·Average number of COVID positives per day – 15.3

·New cases per 100,000 residents - 1422

An additional visual that I like with COVID data from Ogle County is available here and also updated daily.

Thank you,

Dr. Caposey
