While Morris Area Elementary School prepares for the return of in-person learning for all pre-K through 6th grade students on January 4th, Morris Schools Superintendent Troy Ferguson is just coming off his own bout with the coronavirus. Ferguson told the KMRS Community Connection that he is still feeling the effects from the virus.
“I wouldn’t recommend it to anybody. I wouldn’t wish it on anybody,” Ferguson said. “I was fortunate that I didn’t have to go to the hospital, but it hit me very hard. And I had it around Thanksgiving and I had just about all of the classical symptoms, I guess, that they describe. For me, the worst was just the exhaustion. I just was unable to stay up for any amount of time. And I still can’t taste or smell anything.”
Ferguson said he’s been on the mend for a long time, which his doctor assured him was a common thing. He said he hopes his sense of smell and taste come back while all the holiday goodies are still around.
