Officials linked at least 11 COVID-19 cases to a University of New Hampshire frat party attended by more than 100 people

The University of New Hampshire and public-health officials have identified a cluster of COVID-19 cases that are believed to be linked to a Theta Chi fraternity party on August 29, the university said in a statement .

More than 100 people attended the party without masks, according to the university.
So far, at least 11 cases of the coronavirus have been linked to the event, which was attended by students as well as people who don't attend classes at the institution.
The school's chapter of Theta Chi was immediately suspended, Dean said, adding that other groups that held parties would face the same penalty.
Many students opted to remain in Greek housing even as in-person classes and gatherings had been banned.
