Winona County Health and Human Services discovered through contact tracing a COVID-19 outbreak in the community of Lewiston.
Health officials in the southeast Minnesota community urge those in attendance of the following events to get tested for COVID-19 and quarantine for 14 days even if your test results are negative:
"Certainly having students diagnosed with COVID-19 brought a sudden reality to the situation," said Gwen Carman, superintendent of Lewiston-Altura School district, which includes the high school where some of the sports camps in question took place.
"What I'm learning is that it's very, very difficult to know exactly when the transmission or transmissions may have happened. There were multiple times the students were together in different activities," Carman said.
Minnesota Department of Health data shows at least 7,349 kids ages 6-19 years-old have tested positive for COVID-19 out of 60,898 total cases in the state.
