GREENWICH — In the past week, there have been 22 new reported cases of COVID-19 in the Greenwich Public Schools, down from 38 new cases in each of the previous two weeks.

Since the district’s last update on Tuesday, there are just seven new cases.

The relative drop-off in new COVID-19 cases comes as the number is also dropping in the town and statewide.

The number of in-school transmissions, which had spiked in recent weeks in part because of a cluster of cases at Julian Curtiss School, have also apparently stabilized. There were no in-school transmissions reported by the district in the last week.

As of Friday, there have been 394 cases of COVID-19 reported by the school district since opening last fall, 22 of which are active. Eleven schools are currently affected by the coronavirus.

Greenwich Public Schools has been on winter recess since Feb. 8 and is scheduled to return to in-person learning on Feb. 16.
