MONTVILLE, NJ – Montville Township Superintendent of Schools René Rovtar announced March 24 that a William Mason Elementary School student tested positive for COVID-19. No identity will be released due to privacy laws.

The school nurse will be contacting those who may have had direct contact with the student. It is also important to remember that people are most contagious at the height of illness or “actively sick,” Rovtar said.

“It is important that we all continue to monitor ourselves and our families for any signs of illness,” Rovtar said. “This communication is for notification purposes only and should not increase fear among the school community, only awareness. Please continue to practice social distancing, stay away from others if you are not feeling well, and continue to practice good handwashing as we all work together to stop the spread of this disease.”
