Groton reports positive COVID-19 case at Charles Barnum Elementary School

Groton — Groton school officials reported that they learned Tuesday that someone in the Charles Barnum Elementary School community tested positive for COVID-19.

"Fortunately, the individual did not have any contact with children or classroom staff prior to testing positive," Assistant Superintendent Susan Austin wrote in a notification to parents, guardians and staff. "The affected person has been instructed to isolate at home following public health guidelines. Ledge Light Health District will contact only those individuals who had recent close personal contact with this person."

She said the school district is monitoring the situation with the Ledge Light Health District and will update families and staff if more information becomes available.
