Report of Positive COVID-19 Test

The Greenwich Central School district was notified that a person in the middle grade building tested positive for COVID-19. The district immediately consulted with our partners at the Washington County Department of Health. The COVID-19 positive person was last on campus on Monday, February 8, 2021.  It was determined by the DOH that some people, with direct exposure to the person testing positive for COVID 19, will be subject to a quarantine order.  The district will be contacting parents of students and employees impacted by the exposure today to alert them to this situation.  Specific information regarding the quarantine order will be made by Washington County Health officials. To allow time for the contact tracing process to occur, the Greenwich Middle Grade building, grades 3 through 6, will be full-remote on Friday, February 12, 2021.

 

Individuals in quarantine will have to be cleared by the Washington County Department of Health before returning to school. Please note that the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and other privacy laws restrict us from disclosing or confirming any personally identifiable information for COVID-19 positive individuals.

  

We ask that all families, staff, and students stay vigilant by monitoring health and symptoms, and by wearing masks and socially distancing. 

The school district continues to execute our reopening plan with fidelity.  Thank you for your support of the Greenwich Central School District.  Be safe and stay well.

Advisory Guidelines for Travel

Dear Greenwich Families,

 

As we approach this well deserved winter break, I would like to remind Greenwich Families of the current advisory guidelines for travel due to the COVID 19 pandemic (https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/covid-19-travel-advisory).  

 

If you travel to a non-contiguous state, US territory or CDC level 2 or higher country, for more than 24 hours, you must first obtain a COVID-19 diagnostic test within 3 days of departure, prior to arrival in New York. Upon returning to New York, you are required to serve a mandatory quarantine period of 3 days. On the 4th day of quarantine, you must obtain another COVID-19 diagnostic test. If both diagnostic tests are negative, you may come out of quarantine.

For travel to a non-contiguous state for less than 24 hours, you need not obtain testing before your return and similarly, do not have to quarantine upon returning to New York.  However, you are required to complete a Traveler Health Form upon entry into New York and obtain a COVID-19 diagnostic test 4 days after your return.

Any traveler that refuses to obtain the required COVID-19 diagnostic test(s) as outlined above is required to quarantine after arriving in New York for the full 10-day period.

Travel to contiguous states—i.e., Vermont, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania—is exempt from the travel restrictions. But, travelers coming into New York from one of these contiguous states must still complete a Traveler Health Form upon their arrival in New York. 

If we all continue to do our part we will be able to remain open for important, in person learning for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year.  Thank you for your support of the Greenwich Central School District.  Be safe and stay well.

WASHINGTON COUNTY DELAYS APPROVAL OF “HIGH RISK” SPORTS AT THIS TIME

 

WASHINGTON COUNTY DELAYS APPROVAL OF “HIGH RISK” SPORTS AT THIS TIME
Following last Friday’s updates to the “Interim Guidance for Sports and Recreation During the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency” the state placed local health departments in the position of having to permit or allow these sports to proceed. Based on the current status of COVID-19 in our communities and the dedicated work that our school administrators, staff and community members are doing to make every effort to continue keeping our schools operating with as much in-person instruction as possible, Washington County cannot soundly permit these “higher risk” sports to proceed at this time. While we all wish for our communities and schools to resume some sense of normalcy, which includes our treasured sports programs, we are committed to continuing to work with our dedicated school leaders, medical oversight professionals, community leaders and neighboring county officials to identify the timeframe these “higher risk” sports can resume in a safe and responsible manner for everyone involved.

WASHINGTON COUNTY HOLDS 65+ TWO-DAY POD EVENT

 

WASHINGTON COUNTY HOLDS 65+ TWO-DAY POD EVENT – see and share our Social Media posts on facebook and twitter
This weekend the Washington County, NY Public Health Department held a two-day COVID-19 Vaccination POD (Point of Dispensing) event, which was a focused event to begin local vaccination of our 65 and older population. This two-day event was a coordinated effort in which we utilized our partnerships with our Washington County, NY Office for Aging & Disabilities Resource Center, Social Services and Community Leaders to conduct outreach to many of our community’s 65 and older senior groups and population. Checkout this brief event overview video to see a few sights from our POD event site: https://youtu.be/C1Lf93mR_kA
Washington County is thankful for receipt of this supply of vaccine from our state partners, which was specifically directed for use in our 65 + population.  The two-day event was held on Saturday and Sunday this past weekend in Fort Edward, and allowed us to vaccinate over 630 seniors in many of our communities! It is our hope to continue progressing our local vaccination efforts for those within our communities, however we continue to be limited by the supply available and directed utilization efforts under the state’s COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution plan.
Our dedicated Public Health staff and the Washington County EMS Vaccination Team (which is lead by the Cambridge Valley Rescue Squad, Inc and composed of a number of EMS personnel from other county EMS agencies as well), worked diligently throughout the weekend to get these #shotsinarms of such a truly gracious number of seniors in our communities!
We cannot say THANK YOU enough to the many personnel who make up our county POD Operations support team, which includes members from our Public Health, EMS agencies, County Buildings & Grounds, DPW, Information Technology, Sheriff’s Office, Safety Office, County Attorney, Social Services, Office for the Aging and Public Safety departments assigned to the event, who all helped ensure the event was conducted successfully in a healthy and safe manner.
