Posted at 7:14 PM, Aug 24, 2020

PUEBLO — The new year at Pueblo District 70 brings a new team to help with the response to COVID-19.

The D70 COVID Response Team is made up of staff members from across the district.

The group's responsibility is to identify and trace any contacts of students or staff who might test positive for COVID-19.

The team also has the choice to close down schools in the district and decide when someone can return to a building.

"We want to keep everyone in the building as safe as possible. We want to keep them as safe as possible so we want to make sure that if somebody is not feeling well, if somebody is having those symptoms of COVID, that they follow those guidelines we kind of established," Todd Seip said.

The district will discuss possibly having in-person learning on September 15th.
