UTICA, N.Y. – Notre Dame students on several bus routes were asked to stay home Tuesday, due to possible exposure to someone with coronavirus at the high school.
Executive Principal Roy Kane says this was a precaution, while the school worked with the Oneida County Health Department to follow protocols and determine who had contact with the positive person.
Kane says most of the students asked to stay home Tuesday can return to school Wednesday, other than a few who had “significant” contact with the infected individual on one specific bus.
"We learned that they did take that bus, in fact, but there were only three students there, plus a driver. Birnie Bus contacted the driver, we contacted Oneida County contact tracing and that was handled immediately,” said Kane.
Notre Dame is following a full-time, in-person learning plan this year.
