FORSYTH COUNTY, N.C. — The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services is reporting a COVID-19 outbreak at a preschool.

The state reports five cases of the coronavirus at the Crossing Preschool Afterschool in Forsyth County. The cases include three children and two staff members at the preschool in Kernersville. 

The pastor of the Crossing at Union Cross, Josh Tufte posted a video telling the congregation about the cases at the preschool.

He said, “We were informed very recently that a few of the people associated with our preschool program at The Crossing campus have tested positive for COVID.”

He said a child who had COVID-19 attended vacation bible school.

“Even though the main threat was inside of the preschool there was a tiny bit of crossover with the child who attended VBS so we are making sure, everybody has been notified who came into contact with them. Everyone is being tested. We are doing our very best to make sure that we are keeping you guys and everyone around us as safe as possible,” Tufte said.
