Student tests positive for COVID-19 after reporting symptoms to Health Services

April 12, 2021

A student reported symptoms consistent with COVID-19 and subsequently received a positive result from Health Services’ rapid PCR testing instrument, COVID-19 Resource Coordinator Mike Ranen announced in an email to the community on Monday. The student is being moved to isolation housing, and through contact tracing, the College determined that no additional students are required to quarantine.

There are currently two active student cases and eight active employee cases on campus. Ranen noted that although the campus remains in Yellow status, students should take precautions off campus.

“While we remain in campus status yellow for now, it is important to remember that you may leave campus only to tend to essential business within ten miles of campus,” Ranen wrote. “Any off-campus dining must be to-go only.”

In a message to the Orient, Ranen encouraged any students experiencing symptoms to proactively report them to Health Services.
