Nov. 9 report on confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the campus community

The College has learned that two additional off-campus students have tested positive for COVID-19. Both were tested at off-campus facilities.

One of these students is a known close contact of previously reported positive cases. Both are isolating off campus.

A total of 24 students and two employees in our on-campus population have tested positive for COVID-19 since the beginning of the fall 2020 semester. Five 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.
