LIVINGSTON, Wis. — The Iowa-Grant Elementary/Middle School will be closed for the rest of the week due to coronavirus concerns.

The school district made the decision Tuesday after taking guidance from the Iowa County Department of Health.

A post from the Iowa-Grant School District’s Facebook page did not say whether there were any positive cases at the school, only that the district is taking precautions.
