A staff member at the Adel Elementary School tested positive Jan. 8, and one close contact was also quarantined, Dufoe said.
Two Adel Elementary School students, one Adel Middle School staff member, two De Soto Intermediate School students and one ADM High School student tested positive this week.
Three other persons were quarantined as close contacts of the infected students and staff member.
