A get-together earlier this month at Lake Perry has resulted in 10 cases of COVID-19 and the temporary closure of the Topeka Police Academy as of Friday.

The popular lake is situated between Lawrence and Topeka, in Jefferson County.

At least two other people, including a recruit officer at the police academy, have contracted the coronavirus because they came into contact with people who were at the party. Now, all recruits at the police academy have been asked to quarantine themselves.
