Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's nephew's Bar Mitzvah was the source of a COVID-19 outbreak that closed a North Jersey middle school, the New York Post reports.

"A few" adults and students were sickened as a result of the 13-year-old boy's coming-of-age party last weekend, Mendham Township Schools Superintendent Salvatore Constantino told the outlet.

As a result, the middle school was virtual on Friday, but is expected to reopen for in-person classes on Monday.

Todd Christie hung up the phone immediately when The Post called him Friday, while Chris Christie declined comment and said only that his brother had been vaccinated.
