After a careful review, the district in coordination with the Ridgewood Health Officer was not able to identify a clear connection or origin of infection between the two cases. Therefore, according to the NJDOH COVID-19 Regional Risk Matrix and the Ridgewood Health Officer both recommend the school closure.
All close contacts have been identified and notified. If you have not been notified then your child has not been determined to be a close contact.
