There have been 28 new cases during the last 2 weeks of September in Canaan and 21 of those are still active. Only 11 of the cases were school age cases. The rest were adults.
Both adults and children are getting Covid. If you have even a mild case or a case that has no symptoms, you can spread it. 40% of our people have had no vaccination. That means there are a lot of people who are at risk and a lot who can get it and spread it.
There are no mandatory rules in Canaan about either shots or masks. The only thing that will save us from this quickly increasing infection is to voluntarily wear masks, voluntarily get shots, get tested if you have the symptoms, stay home if you are sick and keep your children home if they are sick.
