We have visited with the staff members that may have had close contact with the individual that tested positive. The staff member is currently self quarantining at home. Muleshoe ISD is continuing to deeply sanitize, and all District employees and students are instructed to continue to follow guidelines and recommendations and to practice social distancing. Out of an abundance of caution, we advise you to monitor your health, follow the guidelines for people who have had close contact. Contact your primary care physician if you develop symptoms. Muleshoe ISD is continuing to monitor this situation and will provide additional information as needed.
