Dear Silverbrook Staff and Community,

In cooperation with the Fairfax County Health Department (FCHD), this letter is to inform you a student at Silverbrook has reported testing positive for COVID-19.

The Fairfax County Health Department (FCHD) will identify and communicate with close contacts of this individual and tell them what action to take, such as testing or quarantine. During this time, you may opt at any time to have your child engage in virtual instruction while the FCHD conducts its contact tracing and investigation.

If you do not receive a call from the Health Department, you are not considered exposed to this case.
