Dec. 28 | Members of the School Community Test Positive for COVID-19
The district learned about two positive COVID-19 cases late Saturday, December 26, and Sunday, December 27.
An individual associated with the transportation department tested positive for Covid-19.
An individual associated with the elementary school tested positive for Covid-19.
These two incidents do not seem to be connected. We are working with the Albany County Department of Health on contact tracing. The Albany County Department of Health will reach out to all contacts and advise on the need to quarantine.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and other privacy laws restrict the district from disclosing or confirming any personally identifiable information. We cannot identify anyone who has tested positive.
The district continues to follow all prevention protocols in accordance with guidelines from the New York State Department of Health and CDC — this includes a thorough cleaning and disinfecting of all school buildings. All schools will remain open for in-person instruction after the holiday break.
Please reach out to your child’s principal if you have any questions.
