Holmdel High School switches to remote learning; 100 students, staff members in quarantine

Another spike in COVID-19 has forced Holmdel High School to switch to all remote learning.
A return to learning from home at the high school until early April, that's the message sent by the superintendent because of what is believed to be multiple gatherings two weekends ago.
All in person learning, sports, and activities are suspended at the high school for now. Dr. Lee Seitz says around 100 students and faculty are in quarantine following a spike in positive cases at the high school. 
According to the data provided by Holmdel School District, there are 13 positive cases of COVID-19 among students and staff district wide, far less than the numbers in quarantine, but the numbers were high enough to close the high school. 
The news comes as New Jersey continues to lead the nation in new positive cases, forcing Gov. Phil Murphy to pause additional reopening. 
There have been 114 positive cases of COVID-19 in Holmdel Township in the last two weeks, roughly 8% of the total number of positive cases recorded since the start of the coronavirus pandemic more than a year ago.
