Extensive and rapid transmission of SARS-CoV-2 occurred at an overnight retreat where adolescents and young adults aged 14-24 years had prolonged contact and shared sleeping quarters. A single student, who received a negative SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR test result <1 week before the retreat and experienced symptoms 1 day after arriving, was the likely source of introduction, resulting in infection of 76% of attendees. Similar rapid spread has been described among younger children in overnight camps (6,7) and adults in congregate settings (8,9).
