• We had 10 new cases on Monday. Seven had symptoms, two are still under investigation and none are hospitalized. They are:
A teenage boy

A man in his 30s
A woman in her 40s
A woman and a man in their 50s

• This report should include the rest of the tests that were backlogged after a problem with the state database. Our investigation team is working to confirm how many positives were included in this backlog.’

• School is opening – let’s get off to a good start! We need to be very careful to keep children and teachers safe by doing our part. For students who are returning to in-person classes:

Avoid close contact with people outside your household, particularly in large groups. If you have
traveled or spent time with large groups, consider distance learning until 14 days have passed since that time.

If your student is even mildly sick or has been exposed to someone with COVID-19, please keep them home. School attendance policies will be more flexible this year to reflect this advice.
