The Diocese of Evansville Catholic Education Office said Wednesday that six more individuals associated with the Diocese of Evansville Catholic Schools district had tested positive for COVID-19.
According to the education office, the positive cases were identified within two employees - one each at two different diocesan Catholic schools, and four students - one each at four different Catholic schools.
As of now, the students and employees are self-quarantining until they're able to safely return back to school. Close contacts of the positive individuals have also been identified and asked to self-quarantine as well.
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.
