Second Positive Test Sends Mount Greylock to Remote Learning
iBerkshires.Com reports after a second positive COVID-19 test in a Mount Greylock Regional School student in as many days, the middle-high school is switching to remote learning through Wednesday, Dec. 9.
Principal Jacob Schutz notified the school community of the move in an email Tuesday afternoon. The announcement was repeated on school's home page.
Schutz said said the move was being made "out of an abundance of caution."
The principal's email says that two students, who were not identified, are following the protocols of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
Schutz Tuesday said that the first student reported to have tested positive for the novel coronavirus -- the one the community learned about in a Monday email -- had not been in school and was not believed to have had any contact with the school community.
On the other hand, the school "did identify four students as closest to the affected student" reported on Tuesday. Those four students have been notified and are undergoing COVID-19 testing while quarantined, the email reads.
