WALLINGFORD, Conn. (WTNH)– An elementary school in Wallingford has conducted a thorough cleaning after an employee of the school’s family member was treated by a physician at Bridgeport Hospital with coronavirus.
A school official tells News 8 that Cook Hill Elementary School sent out an email to families of students and staff informing them that all high touch surfaces in the building were cleaned not as a requirement or suggestion of the state, but just as a precaution.
This, after a staff member of the school, had a family member who was seen and treated by a physician at Bridgeport Hospital who was diagnosed coronavirus.
Officials say that the school staff member is not considered a risk “due to the fact that her relative has not shown any symptoms nor did the doctor when meeting with her relative.”
The cleaning was done as a precautionary measure.
Below is the email that was sent to the school community:
