Good afternoon. This is Kathy Harris-Smedberg, Interim Superintendent of the Bangor School Department, reaching out to inform you that we have recently received notification of at least one confirmed case of COVID-19 in a student or staff person at Bangor High School. We are working closely with Bangor Public Health and the Maine CDC to minimize the spread of the virus. If you or your child have been identified as having been potentially exposed, the CDC or a Bangor nurse will contact you today and will provide you with more information regarding what you will need to do. Please know that all people in contact with the confirmed case will need to quarantine for 14 days.
You should monitor yourself and your child for signs and symptoms. Call a health care provider if symptoms begin. For general COVID-19 questions, dial 211.
As we receive more guidance from the CDC, we will provide you with additional updates regarding our plans for in person learning.
Stay safe and be well.
Kathy Harris-Smedberg, Ph.D.
Interim Superintendent of the Bangor School Department
