Spring Grove Area High School closes due to COVID-19
Spring Grove Area High School will close for two weeks after two new cases of COVID-19 were reported on Tuesday, according to a news release on the school district's website.
Students transitioned to virtual learning on Wednesday and will not resume in-person learning until Dec. 1. The affected areas in the high school have been cleaned and sanitized, and no other buildings in the district will close, the release states.
"As a reminder, please continue to closely monitor your child’s health and seek medical attention if any symptoms arise that are new and/or not explained by another reason," wrote Superintendent George W. Ioannidis.
The high school's closure came the same day as York County reported 238 new cases of COVID-19, a record-shattering increase.
As of Wednesday, there had been 8,632 cases of COVID-19 in York County and 227 deaths linked to the disease since the outbreak began.
