Two Students Test Positive for COVID-19 | No Risk of Transmission to Others at School

The district has learned that two students have tested positive for COVID-19.

Our thoughts are with the individual who tested positive and we wish them a speedy recovery. Privacy laws restrict the disclosure of personally identifiable information of anyone who has tested positive for the coronavirus.

  • A student at Liberty Elementary School who was last on campus March 16 has tested positive for COVID-19. Health officials have determined that no contract tracing is necessary and the student was not at risk of transmitting the coronavirus while at school. The elementary school remains open as scheduled.
  • A student at Liberty High School who attends school on an all-remote schedule has tested positive for COVID-19. The high school remains open as scheduled.

Staff members and parents and guardians of students at risk for exposure to COVID-19 have been individually notified by a building principal, administrator or school nurse. Contact tracers from Sullivan County Public Health Services also reach out to people at risk for contracting the coronavirus and advise them of what steps to take.

For more information about our health and safety procedures please reach out to your building principal. Questions about COVID-19 should be directed to your healthcare provider or Sullivan County Public Health Services at 845-292-5910.
