On Monday, Warrick County School Corporation (WCSC) Superintendent Brad Schneider said one of WCSC's bus drivers had tested positive for COVID-19. Supt. Schneider said that the corporation had learned of the bus driver's positive test on Sunday evening.

According to Supt. Schneider, eight other bus drivers were deemed as close contacts to the positive individual, causing those eight drivers to quarantine as a result.

The school corporation had said Sunday that "a significant number of the Castle area bus drivers who serve the WCSC will be unable to drive their assigned routes due to the COVID-19 pandemic," but hadn't yet specifically said that a driver had tested positive or that eight others had been quarantined due to the positive test.

The letter sent Monday by Supt. Schneider urged parents to have a plan in place in the event that WCSC would have to move to virtual learning, whether it be a short-term move or a long-term one.
