Students at Minneapolis' Edison High School will continue their learning online for the next two weeks because of a COVID-19 outbreak.
A "significant" number of students will have to quarantine due to exposure from other students who tested positive for the virus, according to a Facebook statement from Minneapolis Public Schools on Tuesday afternoon. Students will begin distance learning Wednesday and return to in-person classes on Oct. 6.
"Please note that while the number of COVID-positive students was not large, exposure is broad due to students moving from class to class at the high school level," according to another statement on the school's website.
