44% of campers test positive for COVID-19

Of 597 campers and staff at a YMCA sleep away camp in Georgia, 44% — 263 people — tested positive.

Of course games, singing and cheering together were encouraged, mostly without masks.

The camp followed disinfecting rules and required staff to wear masks, but campers did not have to wear face coverings.

Campers ranged in age from 6 to 19, and many of the staffers were teenagers. Cabins had between 16 to 26 people.

51% of positive cases were in 6-to-10-year-olds.

Staff at the camp had all tested negative in the previous 12 days.
