Dear HUUSD Families,
On Monday, December 20, we learned about a person in our learning community with Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) at Harwood Union High School. No buses are affected. We are beginning the process of contact tracing. All identified close contacts who are fully vaccinated will be notified via email; close contacts for whom we do not have a record of COVID-19 vaccination will be notified by phone. Families at HUHS will be notified once the calls have been completed. We recommend that you take action to help limit the spread of COVID-19, even if your child is not experiencing symptoms.
People who may have been exposed will be notified: Anyone who is not fully vaccinated and was in close contact with the person who tested positive may have been exposed to the virus and will be asked to quarantine, which means staying home and away from other people for up to 14 days. Read more about what it means to quarantine. Test to stay is available for these students.
Anyone who is fully vaccinated or has recovered from COVID-19 within the past 3 months and was in close contact with the person who tested positive does not need to quarantine unless they develop symptoms.
If you are identified as someone who may have been exposed, someone from HUUSD will notify you. Learn more about what happens when there is a case in a school.
The most important things you can do:
We are working with the Health Department to keep our community safe.
Learn more about getting tested in Vermont. The following testing times are available this week.
