As Connecticut recorded its highest number of COVID-19 cases since June, towns are asking the public to stay vigilant about being safe.
Norwalk officials say that since Monday, there have been 68 new cases in the city alone. Brien McMahon High School will continue remote learning for two weeks.
The superintendent of Norwalk Public Schools, Alexandra Estrella, says students contracted coronavirus at an event outside of school. She says students participated in a scavenger hunt, and around 11 of them tested positive.
Some of those students go to Brien McMahon High School. School health officials did contract tracing and decided it was best to close the school for two weeks.
Estrella adds it's important for students to practice all the safety precautions everywhere just like they do when they are in the classroom.
She says this is all very fluid, and that Brian McMahon High School plans to go back to its hybrid learning model on Nov. 2.
