COLONIE, N.Y. (NEWS10) — In a statement posted to the district’s website, North Colonie Central Schools Superintendent D. Joseph Corr announced that a member of the school community has tested positive for COVID-19.
Corr announced Monday that the individual in question was not present for the first day of school in the district, though they had been present in the high school from last Wednesday through Friday, when no students were present.
The infected patient is in isolation and won’t return to the school until cleared by their local health department, according to Corr. The school is remaining open for in-person instruction.
Corr said the district is working with the health department on contact tracing among the school community. Corr’s statement says it will be up to health departments to arrange testing and provide advice on who needs to isolate, and for how long, if potentially exposed.
Although Corr was careful to say that identifying would likely constitute a HIPAA violation, he maintained that all potentially contaminated spaces have been deep cleaned and disinfected.
