PUSD announces more positive cases on two Quincy campuses

Plumas Unified School District announced today, Oct. 1, that it has three more positive cases  of COVID-19 associated with the Quincy High school campus and one positive case at the Quincy Elementary Alder campus.

Yesterday, the school district was more specific about the cases and named the specific classroom, but has decided not to revert to more general information.

Specific questions should be directed to the school site. That was part of the reason that the district provided more specific information to avoid having campuses bombarded with inquiries.

Public Health (PCPHA) is conducting contact tracing and investigation.  Impacted families associated with these grade levels will be contacted by Public Health.

This was yesterday’s case count:
