WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - The Hermon DeKalb and Morristown Central School districts are shifting to remote learning for the rest of the week.

In an announcement on the district’s Facebook page, Hermon DeKalb officials said a staff member, who has been in multiple classrooms, has tested positive for COVID-19.

“We will need to change to full remote learning for the remainder of this week to allow time for contact tracing,” the post said. “If your child has been in contact with this individual you will be contacted by our staff.”

Meanwhile, the Morristown district is pivoting to remote instruction for all students in grades 9-12 after a staff member tested positive for the coronavirus.

In a Facebook post, the district said it plans to bring students back into the classroom next Tuesday.
