OGDEN, Utah — Mount Ogden Junior High School (MOJHS) will move to online classes starting Wednesday, after confirming 15 positive COVID-19 cases in the school.
It is unknown if the cases are all students or faculty at this time.
15 cases means Mount Ogden Junior High now meets the threshold for how many COVID-19 cases there can be before the school can no longer hold in-person classes. To mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the school has decided to move to online classes.
The school will start online classes from Nov. 4 to Nov. 18.
How To Prevent the Spread of COVID-19 Coronavirus
COVID-19 coronavirus spreads person to person, similar to the common cold and the flu. So, to prevent it from spreading:
- Wash hands frequently and thoroughly, with soap and water, for at least 20 seconds.
- Don’t touch your face.
- Keep children and those with compromised immune systems away from someone who is coughing or sneezing (in this instance, at least six feet)
- If there is an outbreak near you, practice social distancing (stay at home, instead of going to the movies, sports events, or other activities.)
- Get a flu shot.
