JORDAN — Jordan has closed all schools, moved students to remote learning and postponed all sports events for the next two weeks after a teacher tested positive for COVID-19.

Superintendent Nate Olson posted a letter on the district's Facebook page that many students and staff had contact with the teacher during the possible exposure period, although the teacher last worked in person with others on Sept. 25, four days before testing positive.

The district has started its Safe Return to School plan, which includes two weeks of off-site learning, with students scheduled to return to school Oct. 12. Athletic events could start two days earlier on Oct. 10, according to the district.
