Another Vestal School District Student Diagnosed with COVID-19
A second student coronavirus case has been confirmed in the Vestal School District.
School administrators issued a statement Wednesday afternoon indicating the district had been notified of another COVID-19 case involving a student.
The announcement came two days after the Vestal district revealed another student had tested positive.
School officials said they are working with the Broome County Health Department to respond to the cases.
People who have had contact with anyone with COVID-19 are to be quarantined for up to 14 days.
The health department has been attempting to contact people who may have been exposed.
In the newest case in the Vestal School District, there apparently was no student or staff exposure because the student was not in school during the infectious period.
District officials have not publicly identified the schools involved.
