I am writing to inform you of four additional positive COVID-19 case in the Norwich Free Academy community.
In two of the cases, the students were last on campus December 8. And, in the other two cases, the students were last on campus December 10. The four students are currently quarantining at home under guidance from the Uncas Health District and our Medical Center. We have made contact with anyone deemed a close contact of these individuals and all additional and appropriate actions as advised by the health district and our medical center are being followed.
Mitigation efforts now are paramount to controlling the spread in our community, and I encourage you and your family to remain vigilant in wearing a mask, keeping your social distance and self-monitoring for symptoms. And, most importantly, anyone feeling sick should not be coming to school.
Thank you again for your continued patience and cooperation. I will provide further updates as needed.
Dr. Brian M. Kelly
Head of School
