Five new cases reported in Old Rochester district
Five new cases in the old Rochester Regional High School, Junior High and Old Hammondtown School were reported in a Jan. 4 press release by the Old Rochester Regional School District.
Three cases were found at the high school, with one each at the Junior High and Old Hammondtown.
All schools will operate as normal following the cases.
The positive individuals in the cases were last in school on Dec. 18 in the Old Hammondtown and Junior High cases, and Dec. 23 in the High School cases. School was out of session for the holiday break from Dec. 24 to Jan. 3, so it is likely that the cases were caused by spread within the community.
It is unknown whether the positive individuals are students, faculty or staff.
