DURHAM, NC (WNCN) — The Durham School of the Arts has registered 83 COVID-19 cases over the past two weeks, Durham Public Schools said Thursday.

The majority of cases happened after the school prom.

“It’s unclear why there would have been a greater number of cases after the DSA prom. But student reunions after prom or outside of school may also have played a role,” DPS said in a statement to CBS 17.

The school is not seeing “widespread daily” transmission of COVID, DPS said.

The district continues to recommend masks for students and staff — the “majority” of them wear masks.

“We urge families to remain vigilant: get vaccinated and fortified, take precautions when in the presence of someone who may have been exposed to COVID-19, and wear masks when necessary,” DPS said.

None of the post-prom cases at Durham School of the Arts have been reported as serious.
