Kurt Browning

Pasco School Superintendent Kurt Browning has tested positive for Covid-19.

Browning notified Pasco County school employees today. He is now in isolation at home.

In a statement from Pasco County Schools, Browning has experienced relatively minor symptoms (fever, chills, general achiness) since Friday, prompting him to get tested. On Sunday, the results indicated he had tested positive.

“My symptoms are relatively minor, but I’m not taking this lightly,’’ Browning, 61, said on Monday. “I’m looking forward to get back to work full strength as soon as the medical experts say I can.”

Browning has mostly been working from home during the coronavirus crisis, but has spent some time in his office in recent weeks. However, he was informed that his interactions do not amount to close contact and do not require self isolation or testing for those he came in contact with.

Last week, Browning unveiled the plans to re-open schools in August, giving parents three choices for their children’s education this fall. The deadline to make a choice is July 1 by filling out the form HERE.
