In an email to the campus community, COVID-19 Coordinator Mike Ranen announced that three students and one employee tested positive for COVID-19 this morning. The College has identified eight students who were in close contact with the students who tested positive. The eight students have been moved into quarantine housing. No employees have been identified as close contacts. The College has not had a student test positive for COVID-19 since February 7—the week students returned to campus for the start of the spring semester and two students tested positive upon arrival.
In an email to the Orient, Ranen wrote that the investigation to identify close contacts has been completed.
Today marks the start of the College’s four-day break. Ranen wrote that the College plans to remain in “Yellow” status for the time being.
