A Queens school has closed due to the coronavirus for the first time this year, officials announced Thursday.
The John F. Kennedy Jr. School in Elmhurst became the first city school to prompt a 14-day quarantine protocol after two unrelated coronavirus cases were confirmed among staff or students.
The DOE could not immediately disclosed who was infected.
According to the Department of Education, action would be taken when two or more COVID-19 infections were confirmed at the same school with no links between the infected students.
“We hope to return to the building on Wednesday, October 13,” a letter from school officials said.
