HOPKINTON – “Due to Governor Charlie Baker’s declaration of a State of Emergency, coupled with the facts that there are 41 presumptive cases of COVID-19 in all of Middlesex County and two presumptive cases now in Hopkinton, the Hopkinton Public Schools will close tomorrow, Wednesday, March 11,” said Superintendent of Schools Carol Cavanaugh today, March 10.
On March 7, the Superintendent of Schools “was informed by Hopkinton’s Board of Health Director, Shaun McAuliffe, that on March 1, 2020, an educator at the Marathon Elementary School had contact with a presumptive positive person.”
“The educator is healthy and is not exhibiting any symptoms at this time. Based on MDPH recommendations, the educator is now quarantined and being monitored for symptoms. To be clear, no one at Marathon School has tested positive or is being tested for COVID-19 at this time,” said the school district on March 8.
