COVID Case at EHS/HCTC- 10/20/20

Post date: Oct 21, 2020 3:43:09 PM

Late this afternoon we were informed by the Ellsworth Superintendent that they had a confirmed case of COVID at their school. The confirmed case is a person associated with Ellsworth HS/HCTC and not with one of our people (staff/students). One of our people did come in direct contact with the individual who now has a confirmed case. We will be following our guidelines, (see attached), and this individual will be expected to be quarantined for the next 14 days. Any area of the school that this individual came in contact with along with the bus that goes back and forth to Ellsworth, will be getting a thorough cleaning before being used tomorrow am.

Per the attached letter from Ellsworth Superintendent Higgins, Ellsworth High School and Hancock County Technical Center will have remote classes tomorrow.

My best,

Christian M. Elkington
