Two more positive COVID-19 cases have been identified in the Madison Central School District. Superintendent Joel Jorgenson notified parents Thursday that a student or staff member in Madison Elementary and in Madison Middle School had tested positive for COVID-19. Jorgenson said that there were no close contacts for the school in either of the positive cases.
Jorgenson also sent parents information Thursday on the district’s new guidelines for quarantine timeframes for out-of-school close contacts. Based on new information from the CDC and the state Department of Health, the district is changing its guidelines for close contact quarantine from outside of the school setting from fourteen to ten days, or seven days with a negative COVID-19 test. Jorgenson said the district will offer a Rapid Test option at the school at no cost for students or staff who are placed in quarantine for a close contact from outside of the school.
