The Corinth School District announced that six students and one faculty member tested positive for the coronavirus after going back to school.

As a result, 116 people were asked to quarantine due to close contact — or being within six feet of a positive case for more than 15 minutes. The district does not intend to reverse reopening plans.

Elsewhere in Mississippi, a middle school teacher died while self-quarantining with coronavirus symptoms. He did have contact with students and teachers before his death. The situation has stoked fears that an outbreak at the middle school is on the horizon, according to Mississippi Today.
