Montpelier school goes to online learning after new COVID case
MONTPELIER, Vt. (WCAX) - Another positive case of COVID-19 at Union Elementary School in Montpelier has prompted the school to move to remote learning.
In a message to parents Thursday evening, Superintendent Libby Bonesteel says there are no connections to other community members and the new positive case in the other school buildings. School officials will meet with the Department of Health on Friday, and contact tracing will begin.
The district first reported two positive cases at the elementary school last week. Four more cases were announced on Monday, all stemming from the same classroom of students. State health officials have said at least some of the cases were connected to the outbreak stemming from youth and adult games at the Central Vermont Memorial Civic Center.
