As COVID-19 cases continue to surge in Clark County, Camas School District administrators say they are doing everything they can to maintain in-person learning and extracurricular activities.
Washington Gov. Jay Inslee responded last week to the recent COVID-19 surge caused by the highly contagious omicron variant.
Camas School District officials said this week they are committed to maintaining in-person learning amid surging COVID-19 infections — fueled by the highly contagious omicron variant — that have led to staffing shortages and student absences throughout the region and prompted a return to remote learning in several Vancouver-Portland area schools.
Camas city leaders took steps this week to help protect public employees during the most recent COVID-19 surge.
The message coming from doctors and public health officials this week is loud and clear: The omicron variant of the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19 is an extremely contagious virus – second only to measles with cases doubling every two to three days – and is threatening to sink our already stressed-beyond-belief health care system.
Anyone else caught between wanting to run away screaming and obsessively tuning in for the latest updates every time a new COVID-19 development happens?
Camas officials have reached out to the public to help decide how city leaders will spend nearly $7 million in federal funds.
