CCTI Students & Families:
We have been informed that an individual from our school tested positive for COVID-19. Information related to the individual is strictly confidential.
When the school was informed of the positive case, we immediately contacted the Pennsylvania Department of Health to seek guidance. Communication occurred regarding risk assessment. After this consultation, it was determined that no students were identified as being at risk, quarantine is not recommended for any students, and school will remain open.
Although this confirmed case did not trigger a closure, please be aware that since Carbon County is now in the Substantial Transmission Stage future multiple cases within a 14 day period may lead to short- term closures (3,5,14 days, etc.)
As has been the case, all of our buildings are disinfected daily. Students and staff have been working diligently to maintain a healthy environment. We ask that everyone continues these efforts.
This is an opportunity to remind all members of our community of the importance of wearing face coverings, keeping socially distant whenever possible and disinfecting hands and surfaces regularly. We also want to remind families to complete the district’s health screening tool that is to be used prior to coming to school each day. Staying home when sick or when exhibiting symptoms not only keeps you safe, but also minimizes the risk of infection or quarantine by others.
