Dear Parent/Guardian and Burlington Faculty/Staff:
Today, the Burlington Board of Health received laboratory testing that indicated that a student at Marshall Simonds Middle School has been diagnosed with a confirmed case of Covid-19. If you have not been contacted by the Board of Health or a member of the Burlington Public Schools Nursing Staff, then your child is not considered a close contact. In addition, there are no classroom closures due to this case.
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 https://www.buoyhealth.com/symptom-checker/?configuration=ma_covid&concern=coro navirus. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dr. Eric Conti, Superintendent of Schools
Susan Lumenello, REHS/RS, CHMM, Director of Public Health
