Seven new cases reported in school district

Jan 16, 2021

Seven new covid cases were reported in the Old Rochester Regional School District on Jan. 14 and 15, bringing the district total up to 139 since its Sept. 16 reopening. 

The 139-case total is a reflection of all the cases that have been contracted by members of the district since school reopened, not the number of active cases. 

Two of the cases were found at Sippican School, and the other five were found in the Old Rochester Regional High School. 

The positive individuals from Sippican School were last in the school building on Dec. 23, and the positive individuals from ORRHS were last in the school on Jan. 10, 11 and 12. 

All schools will continue as normal following the cases.
