EAST HAVEN, CT — There are two more cases of coronavirus in East Haven schools, the superintendent said in letters to families late Tuesday. This brings the total number of cases to four.

One of the school “community members” attends the adult education night school program, schools superintendent Erica Forti said. That person was last in school Oct. 5.

The other positive case is at East Haven High School and that person was last in school Friday.

As per its procedure, school and health officials told both people to stay home and self-isolate for 10 days. Forti said family members have also been instructed to self-quarantine and get tested.

Forti said that anyone who is considered a close contact with these two people will be notified by the school or local health department and provided with instructions for appropriate steps to take.

The first positive case was reported on Sept. 22 and the person was identified as a member of the Momauguin Elementary School community. The second was Sept. 29 at Joseph Melillo Middle School, it was reported.
