RAYMOND, N.H. (WBZ NewsRadio) — A high school in New Hampshire shuttered for at least two days and switched to remote learning after identifying a major COVID outbreak. The Raymond School Board decided to switch to remote learning on Wednesday night after 58 cases were discovered at Raymond High School.
The school was closed for in-person learning on Thursday and will be closed again on Friday. 30 more students are being tested for COVID, so the overall number of students in the outbreak could grow.
The board also voted to put a temporary mask mandate in place at the district's Elementary and Middle schools. School officials are asking parents to get in touch with the school nurse to report any positive tests to make sure they have an accurate count. Those with symptoms will be allowed to return after testing negative and being fever free for a day, or staying home and isolating for ten days.
