PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Punxsutawney Area Elementary School reported a new confirmed COVID-19 case in one of its students in a letter posted on the district website Thursday.

The case was identified the same day, as school administrators learned a student who had contact with other students on Sept. 3 tested positive for COVID-19. Nine other students were instructed to quarantine after they were identified as close contacts.

No teachers or staff are known to have been exposed.
