 I am writing to inform you of a positive case of COVID-19 at Benton Elementary School with no other individuals at the school identified as close contacts. The MDOE and the Maine CDC were notified. This individual was not present in the school for any time during the infectious period.  We will continue to monitor the health environment. At this time, there are no other cases to report.

 We are notifying the community in an effort to keep those associated with Benton Elementary School informed, and to clarify the information we have at this time. Please continue to monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19, call a health care provider if symptoms start, and stay home if you are sick. 

 Thank you for your cooperation and continued vigilance.

 Stay safe and be well.
