That followed a number of major outbreaks among the student body which had made it impossible to trace which students had came into contact with the virus.
The festivities Swiss authorities believe to be the origin of the school’s outbreak had been held before Vaud, which has recorded more infections than any other Swiss canton, introduced stricter measures on Sept. 17.
Those included the closure of night clubs and a ban on private events of more than 100 people, as well as mandatory mask wearing in public locations indoors. ■
