A “cluster” is defined by the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services as five or more cases in close proximity.

The school says those who tested positive are being isolated and quarantined.

WRAL-TV reports the school’s women’s basketball team recently postponed a game due to concerns about the virus. It’s not clear if the cluster was within the basketball team.
