The district learned this afternoon, Dec. 10, that an individual from the William H. Barton Intermediate School community has tested positive for COVID-19. The individual was last in the building on Dec 9.
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.
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 Cosh (WHBI) 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.
