BROOKFIELD, CT — Two more members of the Brookfield High School community and one from the Whisconier Middle School community tested positive for coronavirus, Superintendent John Barile announced Monday.

The affected people have been instructed to remain home and isolate for 10 days.

Anyone who is considered a "close contact" with the infected community members has been contacted by now or will be contacted very soon and provided with instructions on the appropriate steps to take, which includes quarantine for 10 days, according to Barile, with close monitoring for days 11-14.

"We continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 data trends in collaboration with the Brookfield Health Department and our District Medical Advisor," Barile said.
