WALLINGFORD, CT — Another coronavirus case has been confirmed at Parker Farms Elementary School in Wallingford, according to officials.

Officials notified families Monday that a person associated with Parker Farms tested positive for COVID-19. Health and school officials determined that the person was “not in close contact with anyone while in a school setting,” according to a message sent to parents.

Parker Farms also had a confirmed coronavirus case last Wednesday. Families were notified Sunday night that a person at James H. Moran Middle School tested positive for the virus. That person was determined to be in "close contact with one or more people while in a school setting" and one cohort at Moran was switched to distance learning for this week as a result.

“The Wallingford Public School District and Wallingford Health Department are committed to maintaining a safe environment for students and staff,” officials wrote in a message to parents. “We continue to proactively monitor illness of students and staff, apply cleaning protocols, and social distancing practices. We will continue to review the circumstances of this case and will make any necessary adjustments in our plans.”
