Feb. 4: New Case; Travel Information; Symptomatic Household Members

New COVID-19 Case

Today the district learned of one individual connected to Guilderland High School who tested positive for COVID-19. This case does not require contact tracing by the school because the individual was not on campus while infectious. Even though this case does not impact anyone on campus, it will be reported, as required, to the New York State Department of Health, and it will appear on the NYS COVID-19 Dashboard.

Albany County K-12 Schools: Symptomatic Household Member Protocol

As a reminder, if a student or household member is symptomatic, they cannot attend in-person school. All individuals in the household (district staff members) cannot return to school until the symptomatic family member receives their negative test results (lab-based/PCR test). Please take a moment to review this information. If you have any questions, please contact your school nurse.

Travel Outside of New York State Guidelines

With a school break approaching, please review the guidelines for travel outside of New York. Anyone traveling outside of the state must quarantine for ten days or follow the outlined “test out” option. 

If you have any questions, please contact your building principal. Thank you for your continued partnership and support.
