Dear Chatham Families,
We have been notified that an employee at Mary E. Dardess Elementary School has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. The employee last worked on February 9. Our District assisted the Columbia County Department of Health (DOH) in conducting contact tracing and we have identified and notified all close contacts in the school setting associated with this case. If you have not been directly contacted by a school representative or the DOH, you do not need to take any action.
While we understand that you may want more details, privacy laws prohibit us from sharing or confirming personally identifiable information about anyone who has tested positive or is presumed positive.
