The state Department of Health and Human Services announced on Sunday that it was investigating a possible outbreak related to a theta chi event last weekend.
University officials said 11 people affiliated with the party tested positive for the virus.
“Let me be clear: this is reckless behavior and the kind of behavior that undermines our planning and leads us to switch to a completely distant mode,” UNH President James W. Dean Jr. said in a statement.
It is the newest cluster connected to a link party
It is a challenge for colleges and universities as it has proven difficult to prevent large parties.
The UNH is pursuing charges of student behavior
The UNH said it would bring charges of student behavior against the organizers and people who attended the party, and the theta chi fraternity has been suspended.
Still, the university’s president said in a message to the campus community that the “overwhelming majority” of students were following security measures.
