Newberry Elementary School is closed today after recording two recent COVID-19 cases.

Two cases within 14 days is enough to warrant a three-day closure at a small school, according to state guidance. The school should reopen for students on Monday, according to West Shore School District officials.

The West Shore School District has recorded 11 cases across the district within the past 14 days, including the Newberry cases, according to its dashboard. The remaining nine cases are spread across the district's 13 other schools, and none have enough cases to reach another closure.
