An important update - November 10, 2020


November 10

I am writing to inform you of three additional positive COVID-19 cases in the Norwich Free Academy community.

In each of these student cases, there was no exposure on the NFA campus. All guidelines and recommendations of the Uncas Health District and our Medical Center are being followed.  

To date, our tracing efforts indicate no passing of the disease on our campus. The cases we have had represent community based spread. Mitigation efforts now are paramount to controlling the spread in our community. 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.
