Dear School Community,
This announcement is to inform you that the district has had one (1) new case of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) since Friday 5/7/2021.
- Raritan High School reported one (1) new case. The individual has had no recent contact with the school. No further action is necessary.
PLEASE NOTE: The CDC and the NJDOH recognize in a school setting that persons who are close contacts of an individual who have tested positive for COVID 19, may be considered for a reduced exclusion period based on Regional Risk Levels. The State of New Jersey, specifically the Hazlet Township Public Schools, is currently in the Yellow or Moderate Risk Area. As such, the quarantine is now reduced to 10 (ten) days for those identified through contact tracing as a close contact exposure or 7 (seven) days with a negative test completed on Day 5, 6, or 7.
This change to our quarantine policy will begin immediately and continue as long as our area of NJ remains in the Moderate or Low Risk Level.
