Decatur, GA — According to records provided by City Schools of Decatur and an email provided by a parent, there have been at least 14 cases of COVID-19 reported since schools reopened to pre-k through fifth grade students on Jan. 19.

In four instances, the cases did not involve elementary schools. Three of those cases involved Decatur High School and one case involved the Wilson Support Center, CSD’s central office.

The most recent case, at Clairemont Elementary, hasn’t been posted on the CSD COVID-19 reporting dashboard. There’s typically a lag between parents being notified and the numbers appearing on the dashboard. Decaturish learned about that case when a parent sent Decaturish an email the school sent to parents. A spokesperson for CSD said the most recent case at Clairemont involves a student.

Here are summaries of 13 of the 14 of the cases reported by City Schools of Decatur since Jan. 19.
