BARRE, Vt. (WCAX) - All schools in the Barre Unified School District will be going remote Thursday and Friday.

This comes as district leaders say they learned of several members of the community tested positive for COVID-19. They say going remote will give time for contact tracers to complete their work.

The list of schools going remote include: Barre City Elementary & Middle School, Barre Town Middle & Elementary School, Spaulding High School, Central Vermont Career Center, SEA and all pre-K programs.

The district says the buildings will be thoroughly cleaned. Then they will determine whether it’s safe to return Monday.

The district still plans to have regular meal delivery on Thursday.

At 19 cases, Washington County led the state Wednesday with one-day case counts.
