Fairfield Ludlowe High to close again amid new COVID cases
FAIRFIELD —Students at Fairfield Ludlowe High School will be learning remotely again Wednesday and Thursday after three more people there tested positive for COVID-19.
“Fairfield Ludlowe High School will be closed on Wednesday, September 30 and Thursday, October 1. Students will follow the remoteschedule published last week,” Superintendent Mike Cummings said in a letter to parents Tuesday.
The closure comes after the school reopened for one day.
Last week, the school closed for Thursday and Friday ahead of the Yom Kippur weekend after several cases emerged among students.
Yesterday, the district said at least 14 people have tested positive.
District and town officials say those coronavirus infections were tied to teen gatherings.
“Indications are that these latest cases result from students gathering again outside of school hours. More information will be forthcoming tomorrow,” Cummings said in his Tuesday letter.
The town health department has already contacted anyone who was in close contact with the three people who tested positive, and those people are now in quarantine, he said.
