Cottonwood reopens after COVID-19 issues


COTTONWOOD, Ala. (WDHN) — Cottonwood High School has reopened, and Superintendent David Sewell said the focus is on monitoring exposure.

He said it’s been difficult trying to control exposure because numbers are low.

He said there are nine students that have tested positive for the virus and that’s why cottonwood is closed so students can quarantine.

“We’re still sanitizing throughout the day, wiping down the doorknobs and the surfaces,” Sewell said. “Then after school, after the teachers are left, we’re doing a deep sanitization.”

Sewell said they’ll keep taking precautions to keep students safe.
