Nov. 6 report on confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the campus community

One additional off-campus student has tested positive for COVID-19, and a second off-campus student is presumed positive due to symptoms and exposure to at least one confirmed positive case.

Both students are isolating off-campus. The student who tested positive was tested at an off-campus facility.

Both the confirmed and presumed cases have had a recent presence on campus, and for that reason both have been added to our tally of active cases in our campus population.

A total of 23 students and two employees in our on-campus population have tested positive for COVID-19 since the beginning of the fall 2020 semester. Six cases are currently classified as active. Two 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.
