COVID-19 Clusters Identified in New Hanover County Schools
The New Hanover County Public Health Department has identified two clusters of COVID-19 positive cases; one at Southeast Area Technical High School and the other at Ashley High School. A cluster is defined as five connected positive cases within a 14-day timeframe. Each cluster was maintained within the student groups upon completion of contact tracing. Therefore, there are no recommendations to move to remote learning for the remainder of the respective student groups.
