Three individuals in school community test positive for COVID-19

The Queensbury Union Free School District has confirmed three new cases of COVID-19 in our school community. The cases include:

  • An individual associated with the QES community who was last in the building on Tuesday, Jan. 5. As a result, we are working on contacting those in close proximity with the individual to discuss quarantine procedures and other health-related instructions.
  • An individual associated with the WHBI community who was last in the building on Thursday, Jan. 7. As a result, we are working on contacting those in close proximity with the individual to discuss quarantine procedures and other health-related instructions.
  • An individual associated with the QHS community who was last in the building on Tuesday, Dec. 22. As a result, there are no school contacts related to this case.

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.

All of our health and safety precautions remain fully in effect. They include mask wearing, social distancing, enhanced cleaning and disinfecting, and the Pinpoint daily health screening. We again remind you that it is critical to answer the daily screening honestly and that anyone who is sick should stay home. These are important precautions designed to limit the spread of the virus. 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 your building 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.

Please note, in the event we receive a confirmed case over the weekend, it will be shared with our school community on Monday afternoon. This allows communication from the district to sync with information submitted to the New York State COVID School Report Card.
