OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) – A small Oklahoma school district has ordered all of its students to stay away from classes until December due to an outbreak of mononucleosis, officials said on Thursday.

Woodland Public Schools in Fairfax, about 100 miles northeast of Oklahoma City, said it made the decision so as not to put the nearly 200 students in the district at risk of the contagious disease.

“The closure is due to a high infection frequency of mononucleosis in our community,” the school board said.
