Today, district officials learned of three individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19.
A student from Goshen Intermediate School and a student from Goshen High School both tested positive. The infected individuals were not in the building during the infectious periods and do not pose a risk of exposure to employees or students.
A staff member from Scotchtown Avenue Elementary School tested positive for COVID-19. Any individuals who may be at risk of exposure have been contacted by district staff and/or the department of health.
Please note that The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and other privacy laws restrict us from disclosing or confirming any personally identifiable information. We cannot identify anyone who has tested positive.
Please remember that we can help stop the spread by following the guidance of the Orange County Department of Health, including washing your hands with soap and water, avoiding gatherings and group activities, and staying home when you are sick.
Please join me in wishing a speedy recover to all of our unwell family members.
