Rhodes Hall closed for the weekend after two COVID-19 cases reported among staff

April 2, 2021

A College employee who works in Rhodes Hall tested positive for COVID-19 in Wednesday’s testing, COVID-19 Resource Coordinator Mike Ranen announced in a community-wide email Thursday afternoon.

According to Ranen, this case is the second positive reported in Rhodes Hall in seven days. As a result, the building, which houses Security and Facilities Management, will be closed through the weekend. Facilities staff who need to enter other campus buildings over the next two days will receive an antigen test prior to entry.

Through contact tracing, the College determined that no additional employees are required to quarantine. There are now three active student cases and two active employee cases on campus, as numbers rise in Maine as well.

“Today Maine announced 283 new cases of COVID-19, the highest one day total since February 4,” Ranen wrote. “We hope that everyone in the community remains committed to physical distancing, using face coverings, and practicing good hygiene.”
