Washington County, NY - Department of Public Safety

COVID-19 CASE CONFIRMED: HUDSON FALLS CSD, SCHOOLS DIMISSING EARLY

This morning Washington County Public Health and the Hudson Falls Central Schools received notification of a COVID-19 + result from a student that attended the Hudson Falls Central School District Kindergarten Center (2 Clark Street, Hudson Falls) as recent as yesterday. County Public Health and the School District are working closely to identify all potential exposures and begin the Public Health Investigation as quickly as possible.

The Hudson Falls Central School District is responding in accordance with their plan and shifting all of the buildings to remote learning for the next 5 school days, allowing for adequate and efficient contact identification and tracing. The school district staff has initiated contact with the school community and will begin dismissal shortly.

HOW DOES CONTACT TRACING WORK?
When a COVID-19 related Public Health investigation commences, our Public Health team obtains information regarding whereabouts, visits, events and lists of contacts of a COVID-19 positive or PUI (Person Under Investigation). Following that, lists are reviewed for exposures and the investigation continues and contact tracing begins, which is conducted by our Public Health team and/or the NYS Contact Tracing team. Contact tracing is conducted by phone, so please be sure to keep your eyes out for calls from "NYS Contact Tracing" or "Washington Co". While we understand this is a very concerning situation, contact tracing is very detailed and takes time to complete accurately. Please understand that the contact tracing process will be ongoing through tonight and possibly tomorrow.

PLEASE continue to be vigilant and utilize safe and healthy practices as noted โฌ‡๏ธ:
- STAY HOME if you're not feeling well
- BE MINDFUL of your activities and those you visit (for contact tracing, if needed)
- SOCIAL DISTANCE (at least 6' between you and others)
- AVOID large gatherings (even though we all want to!)
- WASH YOUR HANDS often
- MASK UP in public places

THANK YOU HUDSON FALLS CSD & COMMUNITY
The Hudson Falls CSD administration and staff followed their plan with dedication, working with our Public Health team hand in hand. Our Public Health team wishes to extend their thanks and appreciation to the school personnel and the Hudson Falls CSD community for their handling, coordination of the investigation and their understanding and support as we begin the process and work through it over the next day. We will provide a coordinated update with our partners at the Hudson Falls CSD on the situation as soon as we have the Public Health Investigation complete.

Here are some random facts for you . . .





1. Shakespeare invented the name Jessica in "The Merchant of Venice".





2. The word "turquoise" is based on the word "Turkish," because it described the color of the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of southern Turkey.





3. Mort Walker, the guy who created the "Beetle Bailey" and "Hi and Lois" comic strips, came up with the idea for using random symbols like exclamation points and hashtags to represent swear words in cartoons. And the official term for it is grawlix.





4. College basketball players aren't allowed to have a jersey number that includes a six, seven, eight, or nine. That's because after a foul, the refs signal the player's number to the scorer's table with both hands, and small numbers make it easier.





5. In the Humpty Dumpty nursery rhyme, there's no mention of him being an egg . . . that's just how he's evolved to look in pop culture.
