Positive Case of Covid-19 at BHS (4-28)

Dear Parent/Guardian and Burlington Faculty/Staff: 

Yesterday, the Burlington Board of Health received laboratory testing that indicated that a student or staff member at Burlington High School have been diagnosed with confirmed cases of Covid-19.

The Burlington Board of Health immediately began a case investigation and determined that there are no close contacts in this case because the individual was not in school during their contagious period. A close contact is defined as anyone within 6’ of the affected individual for greater than 10 minutes.  

Parents/guardians should be aware of the signs and symptoms of COVID-19. If you believe you or your child may have symptoms of COVID-19, you can check symptoms at
