A school superintendent will temporarily be placed into quarantine after his wife tested positive for COVID-19.
Darien Schools Superintendent Alan Addley is in a voluntary quarantine for at least 14 days after learning of his potential exposure to the virus, though the district said that he is “feeling well.”
Addley said that he is following the guidance of the CDC, district protocols, and his physician.
Before returning to the office, Addley will have to take a negative COVID-19 before Tuesday, Dec. 1, when his quarantine would be ended.
According to the Darien School District’s COVID-19 dashboard, as of Tuesday, Nov. 17, 20 members of the community have tested positive, and 295 were in quarantine. Nine different locations were impacted by the virus.
“Inevitably, as a community, we will continue to experience positive cases and many people and families will experience periods of quarantine,” Addley said. “I encourage everyone to remain vigilant in practicing health and safety measures that will keep the community safe and our schools open.”
