COVID-19 case reported in East Lyme High School community

Another member of the East Lyme High School community has tested positive for COVID-19.

Superintendent Jeffrey Newton told parents and guardians of the case in a letter on Wednesday.

“East Lyme High School will remain open since the last time this individual was onsite was October 6, 2020. Additionally, there is no impact on any other buildings related to this specific high school case,” the letter reads. “Those individuals identified as primary contacts at the high school will be contacted directly and emailed a follow-up letter regarding quarantining measures that they will need to follow.”

The high school shifted to full distance learning for Oct. 8-22 after three positive cases were reported.
