Aaron Crook, RPS COVID-19 Health and Safety Compliance Liaison reported that this morning, the District learned that a member of the Ridgefield High School community has tested positive for COVID-19.
This individual was quarantined due to an exposure at RHS on 11/12/20. There is no other known source, thus, we can not rule out in-school transmission.
"I have conferred with Town of Ridgefield Health Department Director, Ed Briggs, and RPS Medical Advisor, Dr. James Ahern about this case and no contact tracing is needed. Please wear a mask, wash your hands, and keep your distance," said Crook.
