September 25, 2020

BEMIDJI -- Four lab-confirmed cases of COVID-19 have been identified within the Bemidji Area Schools district since the start of school on Sept. 14.

Bemidji High School, Gene Dillon, Lincoln Elementary and J.W. Smith Elementary each have had a confirmed case, and around 45 total students are quarantining, “out of an abundance of caution,” Superintendent Tim Lutz said Thursday. He said the district has worked with health officials to identify those who had close contact with the cases, and have notified them individually.

Public health has also indicated there does not seem to be community spread within the schools, Lutz said.
