A coronavirus exposure linked to a homecoming dance held Saturday at Spotswood High School in Middlesex County has forced approximately 200 students into quarantine. Spotswood Public Schools first learned that a student in attendance at the dance subsequently tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday evening, according to Superintendent Graham Peabody. Parents of students in attendance at the dance were notified that same night of the exposure and informed their children would be required to quarantine. “Given our inability to contact trace this event, as indicated in our permission form, there is a need for your child, as a close contact, to quarantine from school for 10 days, with a return date of October 19,” a letter from the superintendent states.
