One individual tests positive for COVID-19

Dear families,

The district learned today, Oct. 25, that an individual from the Queensbury Union Free School District community has tested positive for COVID-19. The individual was present in both the middle and high school buildings last week.

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. The individual followed COVID-19 protocols at all times, in accordance with the district’s safety plan. 

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 continues to thoroughly clean and disinfect all buildings on campus, in accordance with guidance from the New York State Department of Health and the CDC. 

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 Switzer (QHS) or 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.

Sincerely,

Kyle L. Gannon
Superintendent of Schools
