Marana Unified School District’s COVID-19 cases

Marana has reported 34 positive COVID-19 cases since they reopened in a hybrid model Oct. 19, according to Alli Benjamin, the district’s public relations and community engagement director.

Eight employees and 26 students have tested positive, but Benjamin says although the district's health services department conducts contact tracing and keeps track of those in quarantine, she wasn't able to provide the numbers. She said in an email, “I will just say that exposures vary from zero to multiple exposures.”

Last week, Marana reported 19 positive COVID-19 cases with 56 students and staff members in quarantine. Although the district is no longer revealing its quarantine numbers, it experienced 15 more coronavirus cases since last Monday.

According to Benjamin, affected school sites include: Butterfield Elementary School, Coyote Trail Elementary School, Estes Elementary, Gladden Farms Elementary, Picture Rocks Elementary, Quail Run Elementary, Rattlesnake Ridge Elementary, Twin Peaks K-8 School, Marana Middle School, Tortolita Middle School, Marana High, Mountain View High School and the Early Learning and Resource Center. Benjamin said a positive test from a staff member in the district’s transportation department was reported on Oct. 29.

Although the public relations director didn’t reveal the number of cases from each school and the date they were reported, she said the site with the highest amount COVID-19 cases is Mountain View High School with eight confirmed cases. Benjamin said, “the other schools who had COVID cases ranged from 1-6 cases.”
