Most school districts participating in state's COVID-19 Screen and Stay initiative

More than 80 percent of public school districts in Connecticut are opting to participate in the state’s COVID-19 Screen and Stay initiative, according to the results of a survey recently conducted by the Connecticut State Department of Education.  Most of the Greater Danbury area is participating, though Brookfield and New Milford have temporarily suspended the initiative and went back to old quarantine guidelines.  The Weston and Region 14 district, which is Woodbury-Bethlehem, responded to the survey that they were undecided on the Screen and Stay policy.   Under the initiative, K-12 students and staff identified as close contacts to a known COVID-19 case but who are not yet fully vaccinated are able to remain in school if they were wearing masks and don’t develop symptoms.
