2 schools in southwest Washington close due to virus

WOODLAND, Wash. (AP) — Officials say two elementary schools in southwestern Washington have closed for in-person learning after two school district staff members tested positive for COVID-19. The Daily News reports all staff members at Columbia Elementary School and North Fork Elementary School in Woodland may have been exposed to COVID-19, so both school buildings will be closed to protect staff and the public, according to a message to parents from Columbia Principal David Starkey. Daily instruction will continue remotely, but instruction may look a bit different because staff are working from remote locations.
