Third student on campus tests positive; number of active cases stays level at two

September 7, 2020

According to an email from COVID-19 Resource Coordinator Mike Ranen sent to the Bowdoin community on Saturday, a third student on campus has tested positive for COVID-19 and is now in isolation.

Three additional students, identified through contact tracing, will be placed in quarantine for 14 days because they were in close contact with the student. There is now a total of four students in quarantine.

The first student who tested positive, whose result came from outside of the College’s testing program from a test taken before they arrived on campus, has been cleared by Bowdoin’s Health Services and released from isolation, so the total number of active cases remains at two.

In the email, Ranen clarified that students in isolation and quarantine are not allowed to leave their rooms and that Bowdoin Health Services will be monitoring their symptoms through telehealth. Additionally, students will have access to professional resources such as Counseling Services “to ensure that students in isolation and quarantine receive the help and advocacy they need,” Ranen wrote.
