For the fourth time in a week, there has been a positive COVID-19 test at a Dare County school, requiring a deep cleaning of the school building and a quarantining of those who have been identified as direct contacts of the infected individual or individuals.
On the afternoon of Nov. 10, Dare County Schools Superintendent John Farrelly informed school families that one case of COVID-19 has been confirmed at Manteo Elementary School. The school will undergo a deep cleaning and sanitizing and will re-open on Thursday Nov. 12 after tomorrow’s Veterans Day holiday. In addition, 20 people identified as direct contacts will begin quarantining immediately.
Aside from Manteo Elementary School, the schools that have reported COVID-19 cases thus far are Manteo High School, Manteo Middle School and First Flight High School.
