The school district notified community members in an email of the following cases:
Stratford High School: 1 positive case, no close contacts.
Bunnell High School: 1 positive case, no close contacts.
Flood Middle School: 1 positive case, no close contacts.
Johnson House Elementary: 1 positive case, no close contacts.
Chapel Elementary: 1 positive case, no close contacts.
Eli Whitney Elementary: 1 positive case. Officials said the case was just reported to them on Monday and the exposure occurred on April 9.
“The affected persons have been instructed to remain home in self-isolation for 10 calendar days and have been provided with additional instructions to follow prior to returning to school and work,” officials wrote in the email. “Family members have also been instructed to self-quarantine (this is 14 days from exposure) and get tested. PCR test should be taken 5-6 days after exposure.
“Anyone who is considered a ‘close contact’ will be contacted by our school nurses and staff. They will provide instructions on the appropriate steps to take regarding quarantine and when to return to school or work.”
The Stratford school district returned from its Spring Break on Monday and is operating remotely for this week out of an “abundance of caution,” according to Superintendent Janet Robinson.
