COVID-19 Cases at RHS, VPES and SRMS

As an addendum to the COVID-19 communication sent on April 18, the communication incorrectly stated that we learned on April 13, that two members of the RHS community tested positive for COVID-19. This should have said that on Tuesday, April 13, we learned that two members of the Veterans Park Elementary School (VPES) community tested positive for COVID-19. These individuals were not in the VPES building during a period of time when they were potentially infectious to others. No contact tracing is needed.

Late in the evening Sunday, April 18, we learned that two members of the Scotts Ridge Middle School (SRMS) community tested positive for COVID-19. These individuals were not in the SRMS building during a period of time when they were potentially infectious to others. No contact tracing is needed.

Today we learned that a member of the Ridgefield High School (RHS) community has tested positive for COVID-19. This individual was at an RHS sponsored activity while potentially infectious to others on Friday, April 16 and Saturday April 17. Contact tracing for this case has been completed.

We also learned today that three additional members of the RHS community tested positive for COVID-19. These individuals were not in the RHS building during a period of time when they were potentially infectious to others. No contact tracing is needed. 

I conferred with Town of Ridgefield Health Director Ed Briggs and RHS Medical Advisor Dr. James Ahern about these cases.

Wear a mask, wash your hands, keep your distance, and get vaccinated.
