Don’t let up

Confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus have increased dramatically in Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence counties.

OSWEGO — The Oswego City School District was notified by the Oswego County Health Department on Tuesday that there have been three new positive COVID-19 cases identified within the district.

The new positive cases include one high school staff member, one Fitzhugh Park Elementary staff member and one Fitzhugh Park Elementary student. Due to confidentiality concerns, the district is unable to provide more information on this matter.

According to Superintendent of Schools Mathis Calvin III, all contact tracing has been completed by the health department and Oswego High School will continue to operate as it has since the start of the school year, while Fitzhugh Park Elementary School continues providing remote instruction for all its students through Nov. 20.

“The district continues to request that parents and guardians be vigilant with ensuring safety precautions, including maintaining social distancing whenever possible, wearing a mask when in the presence of other individuals, following proper hand washing etiquette and staying home when exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms,” Calvin said.

Anyone with questions or concerns about COVID-19 exposure can contact the Oswego County Health Department COVID-19 Hotline at 315-349-3330.
