This wasn’t a great time for DHHS to forget to update the data from Wednesday on the dashboard. Several Windham High Schoolers attended a party that included at least one kid who was infected with COVID-19. Several kids from Salem were also part of this party. Windham High School has shut down for a few days, waiting for DHHS to give their recommendations, and the Salem students were told to stay home until things had been worked out. Hopefully, our Salem kids will be ok, can continue to stay safe, and always, be kind.
