KENDALL — The school district is reporting its first positive Covid case, a staff member in the Kendall Junior-Senior High School.

The district can’t provide any more information about the person due to privacy laws.

The Orleans County Health Department notified the district of the positive test today, and the district notified the community by phone calls, emails and on the district’s website.

“School will continue as scheduled,” Julie Christensen, the district superintendent, said in a letter to the community. “We will monitor the situation and work with health officials who will be responsible for contract tracing.”

The Health Department will notify anyone if they are considered a close contact and need to quarantine. If there is no communication from the Health Department then there is no need to quarantine, Christensen said.
