In an email to the community sent on Saturday afternoon, COVID-19 Resource Coordinator announced that an employee of the College tested positive for COVID-19 in Friday’s on-campus testing. The employee is isolating at home. One other employee was identified as a close contact through contact tracing and is now quarantined at home.
This is the second employee case since students returned to campus on February 5 and 6, and the fourth case among both students and employees. There have been no student cases since arrival day testing.
“While we have had a low number of cases recently, this serves as a reminder that the virus is still in our community and we all need to continue our commitment to the safety precautions of face covering, physical distancing, and proper hygiene,” Ranen wrote.
