Health Department
 
The Brookfield Health Department has detected a rapid and significant increase in the number of COVID-19 cases in the school system: students, their families and staff. Reported numbers from the state and news media do not accurately reflect the situation in Brookfield. This is because of the nature of and delays in reporting positive cases from the various testing sites. In addition, a number of cases include school employees and their families, who may have been forced to quarantine. This sends our real numbers to potentially dangerous levels. To date, we have no documented spread in the schools, but we must exercise extreme caution and follow the science. That means moving temporarily to remote learning, curbing congregate gatherings and some sports activities, for example.
