A member of the Branchville Elementary School community has tested positive for COVID-19. Ridgefield School District Health and Safety Compliance Liaison Aaron Crook says that person had last been in the building while potentially infectious to others on Friday. Two staff members were instructed to quarantine for 10 days as a result. Another person at the school later tested positive and Crook says in-school transmission in this case cannot be ruled out. A member of the Ridgefield High School community also tested positive and was last in the building January 4th and 5th. As a result, 20 students and six staff members need to quarantine. Two other positive RHS cases were not in the building while potentially infectious.
