MOAB, Utah — All classes and activities at Grand County High School have been canceled from Sept. 7 to Sept. 10 due to an outbreak of COVID-19 and a lack of available substitutes. 

Officials with the Grand County School District said Saturday afternoon that 10 staff members and nine students at the high school have tested positive for the virus, as well as three teachers and four students at Helen M. Knight Elementary School.

“We are unable to provide substitutes for this many staff members,” read a Facebook post from the district.

Due to the lack of staffing, all classes and after-school activities, on or off campus, were canceled at Grand County High School, including athletics.

District officials said the high school would undergo a deep cleaning during the closure.

The Facebook post went on to say that a mandatory mask mandate would go into effect for all PreK through 12th grade students in the Grand County School District, beginning on Wednesday, Sept. 8.

The order, which will last for at least 30 days, applies to all students, staff, volunteers and parents, regardless of vaccination status.

Officials said classes will resume at Grand County High School on Monday, Sept. 13.
