There has been a confirmed case of COVID-19 at Doolittle School, administrators informed families on Sunday.
On Oct. 25, Doolittle Principal Amy O’Brien sent an email to parents and students informing them that someone had tested positive for the virus while providing details of what school officials knew at the time.
“We were notified today that a member of our school community has tested positive for the coronavirus,” O’Brien said, in her letter. “The affected person will remain home and will be quarantined for 14 days and has been provided with additional instrustions to follow prior to returning to school.”
According to the letter, the last day in which the individual was at Doolittle Elementary School was Friday, Oct. 23. and those who are considered to be in “close contact” with the individual have been notified.
It remains unclear if the individual infected is a student or a member of the Doolittle staff, nor whether other students or staff have been asked to quarantine. Doolittle School remained open for in-person instruction on Monday.
