Nov. 12 report on confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the campus community

The College has learned that two additional employees have tested positive for COVID-19.

The employees work in different areas on campus, and their cases are not believed to be related.

One of the employees was last on campus on Nov. 4, and the other was last on campus on Nov. 6. Both employees were tested at off-campus facilities, and are isolating off campus.

A total of 26 students and four employees in our on-campus population have had confirmed or presumed positive cases of COVID-19 since the beginning of the fall 2020 semester. Nine cases are currently classified as active. Four students are currently in quarantine on campus, and zero are in isolation on campus.

Our community can stay up-to-date via our COVID-19 dashboard, which includes tallies of current active cases, total cases last week, total recoveries, data on on-campus student testing and positivity rates for those on-campus tests, and information about students quarantining and isolating on campus.

This dashboard does not include counts of positive cases among students taking online courses from home, or employees who are telecommuting and not coming to campus, as any such cases should not pose an on-campus health risk.

As previously announced, the College will continue reporting new positive cases of COVID-19 to community members through the Daily Digest e-newsletter. Each issue of the Digest will include a “Coronavirus Update” announcing new, confirmed positive cases among students or employees, if any.
