As of Thursday, Brunswick High School has now reported four active cases of COVID-19, up one from when the outbreak was first announced by Superintendent Phil Potenziano in a letter on April 19.

The Maine Center for Disease Control defines an outbreak as three or more cases of COVID-19 within a 14-day period that are epidemiologically linked.

“Please monitor yourself/your student for signs and symptoms,” Potenziano wrote. “A school representative has contacted all close contacts.”

According to a reopening update on April 9, all Brunswick schools will be transitioning from two days to four days per week of in-person learning beginning on April 26 until the end of the school year.

There are currently nine active positive or probable cases of COVID-19 in the Brunswick School District — four at Brunswick High School, three at Kate Furbish Elementary School and two at Brunswick Junior High School.

In total there have been 56 cumulative cases district wide.
