Jordan Public Schools (JPS) works closely with the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) to determine action steps for a reported case of COVID-19. Guidance from local and state health officials will determine if communications are needed to an individual, a classroom, program participants, athletics teams/pods or a whole building.
