Moloka‘i Grab-And-Go Meal Service Modified After COVID-19 Case Involving High School Employee
Grab-and-go Meal Service on Molokaʻi is being modified as a precaution after confirmation of a positive COVID-19 case involving a Molokaʻi High School employee.
The affected employee was last on the Molokaʻi High School campus on Friday, Sept. 4, and had minimal interaction with staff and no interaction with students, according to officials with the state Department of Education. Any impacted areas were professionally cleaned and disinfected over the weekend.
The administrations of Molokaʻi High, Molokaʻi Middle, Kaunakakai Elementary and Maunaloa Elementary schools sent out a communication to their school communities today. An earlier notification went out to Molokaʻi High School staff and parents on Friday.
“We extend a sincere mahalo to Rep. Lynn DeCoite for her kōkua in securing an alternative provider for student meals during this temporary period. This will allow for uninterrupted grab-and-go meal service for our students,” education officials said.
Department officials say that the modification is being done out of an abundance of caution, and starts on Monday, Sept.14. This will affect the grab-and-go pick-up location for Molokaʻi High and Molokaʻi Middle.
