GREENWICH — The last positive case of COVID-19 in the Greenwich Public Schools was reported more than one week ago, on June 4.

On Tuesday, the district reported zero new cases for the third time in a row in its COVID tracker, which is updated biweekly. Since the start of the month, just two cases of the coronavirus have been reported among students and staff. And since May 11, there have been just four cases reported, in total.

The number of cases of COVID-19 reported since the start of school last fall remains at 694, according to the district. There are zero active cases in the district and no schools affected as of Tuesday.

The low in-district numbers continue as the end of the school year approaches.

The Greenwich High School graduation is scheduled for June 21, and the last day of school for all students is June 22.

Last week, First Selectman Fred Camillo used a sports metaphor to describe the town as in the middle of the ninth inning in its response to COVID. “We’re almost there, but the game’s not quite over,” he said.
