What is the process for reporting a positive COVID-19 case to GLPS?
Until further notice, please make sure you are communicating all COVID-related illnesses, testing results, exposures, and all related issues to the GLPS Health Team.
Please use the COVID-19 Reporting Form for students and staff who test positive. In addition, please communicate accordingly with the appropriate building principal.
You can also contact the GLPS Health Team at (517) 925-5725 or Health@GLcomets.net.
The GLPS Health Team will work with you, in confidence, and coordinate communication with the Barry-Eaton District Health Department (or another health department).
