We are actively tracking COVID-19 cases among our students and staff and will immediately take action to reduce the potential for spread by asking those who might be at risk to quarantine. We are working in close partnership with the Minnesota Department of Health as well as local public health officials for contact tracing and notifications.

The table below shows positive cases recently reported at Bluffview, as well as a cumulative total since Sept. 8, 2020.

In order to maintain data privacy, we are not making the distinction between staff and student positive tests.
