2 more COVID-19 cases in Fairfield Public Schools
FAIRFIELD — Two individuals at separate schools have tested positive for COVID-19, the school district announced on Wednesday.
Fairfield Public Schools Superintendent Mike Cummings said a person at Fairfield Warde High School and another at Roger Sherman Elementary School tested positive for the virus.
Cummings said contact tracing was immediately done and any close contacts are already in quarantine. There are no school closures at this time.
If further contact tracing indicates additional people need to quarantine, they will be contacted by a member of the town’s health department’s contact tracing team.
“The safety of our community is our priority,” Cummings said. “We are monitoring this situation closely and will continue to keep you informed of any changes or additional information.”
The news of the two additional virus cases in the school district comes after officials on Tuesday afternoon said six others had tested positive for the coronavirus.
Those six cases included three at Fairfield Ludlowe High School, one at Dwight Elementary School, one at Fairfield Warde High School and a fully-remote student.
