Confirmed Positive Case of Covid 19

Good Afternoon Families of Riverwood Middle School,

Today we were notified of a positive case of COVID-19 within our school. This case has been confirmed by the Johnston County Public Health Department. Our school has been deep cleaned and disinfected. Common areas (bathrooms, breakroom, etc.) were also cleaned and disinfected.

Please know the individual will self-isolate in their place of residence until the following are met:

The individual has not had a fever (temperature greater than 100.4 degrees) for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications.
Symptoms have improved (for example, cough and shortness of breath).
At least 10 days have passed since the first symptoms appeared or since being tested.

Individuals who are deemed close contacts based on the CDC definition have been contacted.

While we do not have reason to believe that those who were not in close contact with the infected individual have reason to be concerned, we ask that you, as always, continue to watch for symptoms of COVID-19 and communicate with your doctor and/or visit

We will continue to closely monitor this situation and will provide additional information as needed. If you have questions, please contact our school office.

Thank you for your support as we work to keep everyone safe.
