After Two COVID Cases Identifed at Lyme-Old Lyme HS, One at Mile Creek, Contact Tracing Completed; Both Schools Will Reopen Monday

LYME/OLD LYME — Lyme-Old Lyme Schools Superintendent Ian Neviaser informed parents by email Tuesday afternoon that, subsequent to two positive COVID-19 cases being identified at Lyme-Old Lyme High School (LOLHS) Monday, the “contact tracing protocol” has now been completed.

As a result he stated, “All members of our school community who must quarantine,” have been notified and the high school, “… is currently scheduled to return to full in-person learning on Monday, Nov. 30.”

Lyme-Old Lyme High School had moved to remote learning for Tuesday, Nov. 24, since there was insufficient time Monday to complete contact tracing after the cases were identified.

Neviaser added, “Today [Tuesday] we were informed of a positive case of COVID-19 at Mile Creek School. We were able to complete our contact tracing in that situation and all individuals who must quarantine have been notified.”

He announced in the email that, “Mile Creek will also continue with full in-person learning,” Monday, Nov. 30.

Stressing, “Containment of this virus will continue to require us all to follow best practices of mask-wearing, hand washing/sanitizing, staying home when sick, and physical distancing, Neviaser emphasized, “Everyone needs to do their part so we can continue to provide a safe learning environment for our students.”
