Student tests positive for COVID-19, third case in two days

March 31, 2021

One student tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday, COVID-19 Resource Coordinator Mike Ranen announced in an email to the community. Through contact tracing, three additional students were identified as close contacts and have been moved to quarantine housing.

This case marks the third student case in two days, and there are now 17 students in quarantine. Despite this increase, the campus remains in status level yellow. Ranen clarified that the decision to change status levels is holistic, with factors including possible evidence of community spread.

“These factors [in determining status level] do include the number of positive cases on campus but more importantly how many of those positive cases are linked to other known cases,” Ranen said in a Zoom interview with the Orient.
