According to the Diocese of Evansville Catholic Education Office, six new positive cases of COVID-19 have been discovered within the Diocese of Evansville Catholic Schools district.
The education office said it learned of the new positive cases on Tuesday, and that they were split between four students and two employees associated with four different diocesan Catholic schools.
- School 1 – One employee and two students tested positive
- School 2 – One employee tested positive
- Schools 3 and 4 – One student from each school tested positive
One day earlier on Monday, the education office said that six other students and one employee within the district had tested positive for COVID-19.
The Diocese of Evansville Catholic Education Office works with 26 different diocesan Catholic schools in Southwestern Indiana, and says that due to privacy reasons, specific information on individuals who tested positive and the different schools they're associated with won't be released.
Tuesday's report of six new positive cases throughout the district is not related to other positive tests previously reported.
