Maskless frat party at U. of New Hampshire led to COVID-19 outbreak

At least 11 positive cases have been linked to a 100-plus-person gathering that the university president says was 'reckless'

A fraternity party of more than 100 people at the University of New Hampshire has been linked to 11 new COVID-19 cases, according to school officials. The cluster comes after students and non-students attended the party on Aug. 29, organized by the Theta Chi fraternity, not wearing masks.

“We will be pursuing student conduct charges against the organizers and all students who attended the event,” university president, James W. Dean Jr., said. “Theta Chi is under interim suspension immediately, as will any fraternity/sorority or other student organization that behaves in a similar manner, while we conduct the investigation.”
