COVID 19 Update – October 19, 2020

I am writing to inform you that a student at the MHS has tested positive for COVID 19. 
The Georgetown Public Health Nurse spent the weekend contact tracing and today that process was 
completed.  The eight students who are close contacts have been notified and will be quarantined 
and tested.  This process included both contact tracing within the school and outside of school. 
The GMHS nurse and Principal Richards worked with the Public Health Nurse today to determine 
if there were close contacts within the school and the result was there were no close contacts 
within six feet of the COVID positive person for 15 minutes or more.  The exposure occurred outside
 of the school. The faculty and staff have been notified and spaces have been cleaned for added 
precaution.  We will continue to follow our safety protocol of six feet of social distancing, 
mask wearing and proper hand hygiene. I urge you to work with your children to use this safety 
measure when outside of the school to avoid potential spread within the school and the community.  
If you have questions, please let me know at jacobsc@geogetown.k12.ma.us.
