CBE Covid-19 Weekly update

Greetings Carl Ben Eielson staff and families,

The week of September 27th, Carl Ben Eielson Middle School had two positive student and staff COVID-19 cases. Out of those cases, two had close contacts due to school or school related activities or athletics. Carl Ben Eielson Middle School administration has reached out to all those deemed close contacts. If you have not been contacted, you or your student are not identified as a close contact in the school setting.

Close contacts include students and staff members who were within six (6) feet of the individual for at least 15 cumulative minutes in a classroom or in other school spaces. Due to guidelines from the North Dakota Department of Health, if the close contact is fully vaccinated OR the close contact and the positive individual were both wearing masks, the close contact does not need to quarantine if asymptomatic.

It is also recommended that students who are symptomatic be tested for COVID. Fargo Cass Public Health provides indoor walk-up testing on Monday – Friday from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM at 3051 25th Street South, Fargo, Suite K. The testing site is located in the Family Fare Strip mall. Prior to testing, please register at https://testreg.nd.gov/. More information on testing can be found by clicking here.
