December 2, 2020

Dear DeSales Families,

Late this afternoon, December 2, 2020, the Niagara County Department of Health (NCDOH) notified me of one confirmed positive COVID-19 case at DeSales Catholic School.

According to the NCDOH, there was no exposure to staff or students at DeSales Catholic School based on the individual's last day of attendance in the building.

DeSales Catholic School will continue to operate as scheduled. The custodial staff will follow cleaning and disinfecting protocols. Please continue to practice social distancing, wear a face covering, wash your hands frequently, and monitor your health regularly. If you have any questions about your health, your medical provider should be contacted.

Thank you for your cooperation as we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.

Take care and God bless.
