Two Fall River schools reportedly see positive COVID-19 cases



Two schools in the Fall River school system reportedly have positive cases of COVID-19.

B.M.C. Durfee High School Superintendent Matthew Desmarais issued a letter to staff, students, and families that a person in the school’s community has tested positive.

Desmarais went on to say that the school has been adhering to protocols and would provide support to those affected.

Desmarais stated in the letter that he could provide no specifics on who tested positive, but would be notifying those privately who came in close contact with the individual (within 6 feet for at least 15 minutes).

“Please continue to monitor yourself or your child for symptoms and keep your child home if he/she/they show any signs or symptoms and are not feeling well.”

A similar letter was issued by Principal of Morton Middle School Sheryl Patterson concerning a positive case of COVID-19 at the school.

Neither letter specified whether the positive cases were students or faculty.

We contacted Desmarais and he stated that the letter is the most they are allowed to reveal by law.
