More children are getting Covid, which can cause symptoms that may be hard for parents to recognize. 

Thirty-one students or staff members have tested positive for Covid in the Vale School District as of last Friday, Sept. 3, and an additional 43 are in isolation or quarantine, according to superintendent Alisha McBride.

Other county superintendents did not respond to questions from the Enterprise about how many individuals are quarantining.

Covid cases in people under 18 have “increased dramatically,” since July, according to the Oregon Health Authority . . .
