The students from Kingsway Regional High School attended a party in Sea Isle City on August 13, according to James Lavender, district superintendent. The school serves several communities in students from Gloucester County, NJ.

According to NJ.com, Lavender said in a letter to parents and guardians that the Gloucester County Health Department is “working hard to determine the extent of this exposure.” He noted that direct information about the exposures has been difficult to obtain.

The extent of the outbreak is unknown. All athletic activities at the school are now canceled for the duration of the summer.

Students who attended that party are being advised to self-quarantine and get tested.

The letter goes on to say...

“...unfortunately, inconclusive and intermittent social media posts have become our best resource of information, exhausting both education and health officials throughout the process. Therefore, we need your help as the status of this investigation is fluid and communication is vital as we work to mitigate additional community spread.”
