Two students at Concord High School and one student at Rundlett Middle School tested positive for COVID-19, the interim superintendent for Concord School District announced Friday.

Classes will be moved online Nov. 2 to give the district time to deep clean both buildings. Students will continue their normal schedules after Monday. Elementary students in the district will continue in their usual hybrid model classes.

Superintendent Kathleen Murphy said all protocols were in place, including wearing of masks and six-foot distancing, prior to the positive cases. The division of public health services will contact students and families who have been in close contact with the affected students.

This announcement comes as the new-case count in the state hits a record high. Last week, the state determined Merrimack County has “substantial community transmission,” the highest designation for community spread. That means new cases, new hospitalizations, and test positivity rates in the county are similarly severe to that of Manchester and Nashua.
