A public school teacher in New Fairfield has self-quarantined. Superintendent Pat Cosentino said in a letter to parents that the staff member may have been exposed to COVID-19 over the weekend. The employee did not return to school after the exposure and will not return until after a period of quarantine.
Cosentino noted that young adults living with New Fairfield families are also self-quarantining after returning from travel abroad, though they have not exhibited any symptoms.
Meanwhile, the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference, which governs high school sports in Connecticut, cancelled the state’s remaining high school winter sports championship tournaments. CIAC's Executive Director said some schools said they would not participate and some venues indicated they could not host the events.
