DUBLIN, N.C. (WNCN)– A school in Bladen County will stop in-person learning due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases, Bladen County School officials said.

Dublin Primary School will be closed for a minimum of two weeks starting October 19 due to COVID-19 and close contact cases within the school, officials announced Friday.

School officials said children and staff should stay home during those two weeks.

Students and teachers will transition to remote-only teaching and learning until further notice, officials said in a news release.

“We understand this comes at a time when a sense of normalcy was returning to our schools. Please know that we consider the health, safety, and well-being of all families as we make these types of decisions.
