MONUMENT — Another school district is dealing with a COVID-19.

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment defines an outbreak as two or more positive tests in a two week period.

District 38 said those who tested positive at Bear Creek Elementary are quarantined.

Officials have not said if the positive tests involve students or staff, but said everyone who might have been exposed is also staying home for the next two weeks.

The school will stay open and continue in-person learning.
