Teachers in the Gwinnett County School District — in the metro-Atlanta area — began in-person meetings Wednesday to prepare for a return to school at 141 facilities throughout the county, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Gwinnett spokeswoman Sloan Roach added that tracing indicates “the majority of these cases are the result of community spread, meaning we have people who have called in to report who have not been at school or work.”
