WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) – A cluster of COVID-19 positive cases has been identified at Eaton Elementary School by the New Hanover County Public Health Department.
As the cluster was identified by contact tracing to be within one group, the remainder of the classroom is not required to move to remote learning because of the guidance outlined in the StrongSchoolsNC Public Health Toolkit (see excerpt below).
A cluster is defined as 5 connected positive cases within a 14-day time frame.
The classroom will be deep cleaned before class resumes Friday.
