LEWISTON — Connors Elementary School will transition immediately to remote schooling because it was designated a COVID-19 outbreak site Monday evening, Superintendent Jake Langlais announced.

Two positive cases of COVID-19 in an isolated room late last week brought the school’s total to four cases within a week, he wrote in an email. He was notified of the cases Monday night.

Sites with three or more COVID-19 cases within 14 days are considered outbreaks by the Maine Center for Disease Control.

This is the fourth Lewiston school to report a COVID-19 outbreak. The others are McMahon Elementary, the high school and the middle school.

Connors is the largest elementary school in the state.
