CYSD Confirms COVID-19 Positive Case at Stony Brook Elementary School, Central York High School

Central York School District has been informed of two unrelated, but confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) within the District.

The Pennsylvania Department of Health has confirmed an individual at Stony Brook Elementary School has tested positive for COVID-19. The individual who is the confirmed case at Stony Brook Elementary School has not been in the school since early September. Individuals who were exposed to the individual with the positive COVID test result were notified by administrators directly. All individuals and the District are following Department of Health protocols for quarantine at this time.

In a separate incident, an individual associated with Central York High School notified the District and some individuals directly that the individual was presumed positive for COVID-19. The Department of Health has confirmed this information, and the individual is quarantined at this time. District administrators have contacted all individuals who were possibly exposed to this case directly.

Please be aware that in any case where the district is notified of possible COVID-19 positive individual, the District will notify the Department of Health to confirm this information, follow Department of Health guidance on contact tracing of possible exposures, communicate directly with any individuals possibly impacted by a case, and work with the Department of Health to ensure all health and safety measures are followed.

At times, this protocol may mean that some in our community hear of a suspected or potential case before receiving official District communication. Please understand that this cannot be avoided at all times, and please know that we will communicate officially when we have clear guidance on a case-by-case basis from the Department of Health AND all impacted individuals have first been notified directly by a District administrator.

At this time, all schools are OPEN and district operations continue as normal.

 The District is following all PA Department of Health guidance, including continuation of heightened cleaning measures and continued monitoring of students and staff for any additional suspected or confirmed COVID_19 cases. 

We ask our families to continue monitoring yourselves and your children for any symptoms of COVID-19 and to continue working with us to ensure the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff throughout this time. 

Thank you for your continued support of Central York School District.
