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

Anyone exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 should avoid contact with others and contact their health care provider and/or get a molecular diagnostic COVID-19 test. Free testing sites can be found at https://www.mass.gov/info-details/stop-the-spread.
For additional information on COVID-19, please go to Burlington.org, public health alerts or call the Board of Health at 781-270-1955 or email email@example.com.
Dr. Eric Conti, Superintendent of Schools
