NATICK – Superintendent of Schools Anna Nolan said the Natick Board of Health is considering making pooled testing mandatory for all students who play sports or participate in after-school activities.
The Superintendent in an email to Natick families last night wrote “happy to report my family and I are out of quarantine (due to exposure through sports) for the moment, but many of our students are in quarantine due to close contact exposure in sports.”
Supt. Nolin said she was invited to the Natick Board of Health meeting on Monday night and is awaiting guidance from the Natick Health Board.
Natick Public Schools reported 16 COVID cases, including 10 at Natick High School, and 3 at Kennedy Middle School.
That number is double the number from the previous week which was 8 cases.
This week, there was one infected pool at Kennedy Middle and one infected pool at Natick High, according to the public school district.
