We had another positive COVID case identified yesterday at Dirigo High School. All close contacts have been notified.
Although CDC has not officially put us in outbreak status, we may (or may not) be identified as such in the near future. Only the CDC can declare an outbreak status. If we do get listed as outbreak status, the close contact tracing changes as listed below:
All students/staff/teachers of any classroom where the student/staff/teacher attended a class are considered close contacts regardless of the setup of the classroom/pod or face covering use.
The best way to ensure your child is not a close contact who needs to quarantine is to get them vaccinated or participate in pooled testing.
