Positive Case at CDE (12/3)

December 3, 2020

Dear Cairo-Durham Families,

The District was informed late yesterday that a student at Cairo-Durham Elementary School tested positive for COVID-19. The student has not been physically present in school since November 24th. Per our health and safety protocols, the District has been in communication with the New York State and Greene County Departments of Health to determine if any follow-up steps are needed. At this time, there is no further action. Based on the student’s last date of attendance, the DOH has advised that there is no impact on the learning environment and in-person instruction at CDE can continue as usual.

Please continue to monitor your family’s health daily, check your child’s temperature and complete the daily health screening questionnaire prior to sending them to school every day. It is important to know the symptoms of COVID-19 and how to identify them in yourself and others. Common symptoms include fever (100.0 degrees Fahrenheit or greater), coughing, shortness of breath, and new loss of taste or smell. The DOH has indicated that loss of taste or smell may be a primary indicator of COVID-19 in asymptomatic individuals. Anyone with questions or who needs to report a COVID-19 related health issue should contact their building principal or school nurse.

Thank you for your continuing efforts to keep our school community safe and buildings open for students and staff.


Michael Wetherbee
Superintendent of Schools
