On Monday, Nov. 9, the Onondaga County Health Department notified the Fayetteville-Manlius School District that a Wellwood Middle School student has tested positive for COVID-19.
The student, who is part of a hybrid cohort, was last in school on Nov. 3.
To allow the Onondaga County Health Department time to conduct contact tracing and for the district to line up substitutes for potentially affected staff members, Wellwood will shift to remote instruction for Tuesday, Nov. 10.
The student who tested positive—and any other students, faculty and staff that the county determines were exposed—will not return to school until they meet the protocols set by the New York State Department of Health.
If you are not contacted by the county but would like to be tested out of an abundance of caution, please visit the New York State COVID-19 web page to find a testing location near you or talk with your healthcare provider.
