HOLYOKE, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -- On Thursday evening, parents were sent a letter by the Holyoke Public Schools confirming that an individual at Marcella R. Kelly Elementary was diagnosed with or has been tested for COVID-19.
Officials also confirmed they have notified individuals who may have been in close contact with the individual, and who may have also been in contact with the virus.
Holyoke Public Schools have yet to release the identity of the individual and whether they're a staff member or a student. They also said they are working with the Holyoke Board of Health and have closed certain areas of the building to deep clean.
While most students in Holyoke are under a remote learning plan, some select students are participating in in-person learning.
