MoCo High School Amid COVID Outbreak

A Gaithersburg high school is in the throes of a coronavirus outbreak on the eve of the new school year.

Montgomery County Public Schools spokesperson Gboyinde Onijala told WUSA-TV (Channel 9) that 16 cases have been confirmed among students and staffers at Quince Orchard High School.

A “good number” of those infections are connected to the school’s football team, Onijala said.

Thursday’s football practice was paused due to the outbreak. However, Onijala said vaccinated players and staff on the team would be able to resume non-contact drills Friday, WUSA reported.

Onijala said contact tracing has started for the team.

School starts in Montgomery County on Aug. 30.
