Dear Port Jervis Learning Community, 

We have been informed this afternoon that two students of the Port Jervis City School District have tested positive for COVID-19.  Both students attend Hamilton Bicentennial Elementary School.  There are no proximate or direct contacts in the school setting for these students.   

Thank you for understanding that, due to medical privacy laws, we are not able to release the names of individuals with COVID-19. We will continue to communicate changes and updates with you.  

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Orange County Department of Health at
