People who were in contact with the affected staff members have been notified.

Sussex Tech is following a "modified remote learning" plan this year, with all students learning virtually. Teachers are working in-school and have the option to bring in small groups when they feel it's warranted.

As a precaution, the Georgetown campus will be closed Oct. 12 and 13 for a deep cleaning, and reopen Wednesday, Oct. 14. Classes and meetings will continue to be held remotely during that time.
