Individual at QMS tests positive for COVID-19

The district learned this afternoon, Dec. 8, that an individual from the Queensbury Middle School community has tested positive for COVID-19. The individual has not been present in the building since Friday, Dec. 4.

At this time, Warren County Public Health is not advising any other individuals to quarantine and/or to be tested due to the risk of transmission being minimal. 

If you would like to be tested out of an abundance of caution, please visit the New York State COVID-19 web page to find a testing location near you or talk with your healthcare provider.

Please note that The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and other privacy laws restrict us from disclosing or confirming any personally identifiable information. We cannot identify anyone who has tested positive.

Since the start of the school year, the district has been thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting all buildings on campus, in accordance with guidance from the New York State Department of Health and the CDC. More information can be found in the cleaning and disinfecting section of the reopening plan.

The district remains open for in-person instruction at this time. We continue to work closely with Warren County Public Health and follow their guidance on how to maintain a safe and healthy learning environment. 

Please contact Principal Brannigan (QMS) directly if you would like more information about our health and safety procedures. Any additional questions, including information about testing procedures, can be directed to Warren County Public Health at (518) 761-6580.
