College employee tests positive for COVID-19, fifth on-campus case in one week

March 25, 2021

One College employee tested positive for COVID-19 in Wednesday’s testing, COVID-19 Resource Coordinator Mike Ranen announced in an email to the Bowdoin community on Thursday afternoon. This case marks the fifth on campus in the last week, after three students and one employee tested positive on Friday.

The employee is currently isolating at home, and through contact tracing, the College determined that no community members met the criteria for close contacts necessary to quarantine.

In his email, Ranen noted the upward curve of COVID-19 cases in Maine in recent weeks. The state reported 218 new cases on Thursday.

“We all need to continue our commitment to the safety precautions of face covering, physical distancing, and proper hygiene,” Ranen wrote.
