MCSD Continues to Monitor Spread of the Coronavirus

February 27, 2020

While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have advised there are currently no documented cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the state of Florida, the Martin County School District continues to partner with the Florida Department of Health in Martin County (DOH Martin) to monitor the spread of the disease.

DOH Martin is working closely with the CDC to study the current outbreak of COVID-19 and is providing continuous updates to school district leadership. District staff is in the process of reviewing pandemic response plans with leaders from DOH Martin to ensure all appropriate precautions are being taken to protect our students and employees.

“The Martin County School District stands ready to implement any and all procedures and precautionary measures as recommended by the Florida Department of Health in Martin County,” Superintendent Laurie J. Gaylord shared. “Our pandemic response plans are being carefully reviewed by District leaders and public health experts to ensure that we are prepared to mitigate any threat the Coronavirus might pose to our schools and facilities.”
