ONEONTA – On Friday, Oneonta High School notified families of a positive COVID-19 case at the school that forced 30 students and four staff members into quarantine.
To date, there have been 16 confirmed COVID cases at the high school since the state began tracking the data last September.
“The families of all 30 students received a phone call from the school nurse and the involved students and staff have been sent home. We will continue to follow contact tracing protocols and communicate as needed,” the emailed letter read.
Congressman Antonio Delgado, D-19, will hold a virtual town hall focused on the American Rescue Plan at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 9.
This week, the House will vote to pass the American Rescue Plan, which includes a provision introduced by Rep. Delgado that delivers $130.2 billion to local governments across the US. Rep. Delgado’s funding formula will bring over $400 million directly to local governments in New York’s 19th Congressional District.
