Two individuals test positive for COVID-19

The Queensbury Union Free School District has confirmed that two individuals associated with the QHS community have tested positive for COVID-19. One individual was last in the building on Tuesday, March 16. The second individual was last in the building on Wednesday, March 17. As a result, all individuals known to be in close proximity with the two positive individuals are in the process of being contacted to discuss any quarantine procedures and other health-related instructions. 

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, physical 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 or lives with someone 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.
