COVID-19 Letter to Families
Dear M.S. 158 Marie Curie at 46-35 OCEANIA STREET Community:
The NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) and the NYC Test + Trace Corps
(T2) have determined that a member of our school community has tested positive for COVID19, and may have exposed others while at school.
Below you will find guidance on next steps that will help keep you, your child, and our school
community healthy and safe. The information below reflects the expertise of DOHMH, T2, and
the New York City Department of Education (DOE).
What Happens Now?
● All students and staff in the affected room(s) with the individual who tested positive are
considered “close contacts,” and have been notified of the need to quarantine for 10 days from
their last contact with the person who tested positive. These students and staff will transition
to fully remote teaching and learning for this period.
● T2 and DOHMH will complete their investigation to identify and notify any other close
contacts in the building, who will also need to quarantine for 10 days.
● Anyone with a positive COVID-19 test will not return to the school until they are no longer

Entering your name and email address,
