GLENVILLE – The Scotia-Glenville Central School District Sunday reported COVID cases at two elementary schools, one each at Lincoln Elementary and Sacandaga Elementary, the district said Sunday.
The Sacandaga positive related to a staff member, while the Lincoln positive related to a worker from an outside agency, the district said.
The Lincoln positive resulted in the Schenectady County Public Health Services recommending that as many as 21 students in different grades be kept home until further notice.
The positive Sacandaga staff member was at the school last Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 27 to 29, the district said. The Sacandaga positive has led to Public Health recommending that a classroom there, including nine students and three staff members remain at home during the investigation by the agency.
Public Health will conduct contact tracing and notify anyone potentially exposed in either case, the district said.
“Everyone at the school is following health guidelines by wearing face masks and keeping socially distant, including the individual who tested positive,” the district said in the two advisories. “All staff members and students complete a series of health questions every morning from the Pinpoint Health Screening App before coming to school.”
The district has also been thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting all buildings on campus in accordance with state and CDC guidelines, the district added.
