Jan. 13 report on confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the campus community

One additional employee has tested positive for COVID-19 and is in isolation off campus. The employee was tested on campus.

Three cases are currently classified as active in our campus community. No students are in quarantine or isolation on campus.

Two students and two employees in our on-campus population have had confirmed or presumed positive cases of COVID-19 since Jan. 1, 2021.

According to the College’s Testing and Quarantine procedure, contact tracers are immediately deployed to interview anyone who tests positive about where they have been and with whom they have been in contact. Contact tracers will notify other individuals as appropriate, and will also notify Facilities Management if COVID-19-positive individuals have been in common spaces on campus within the last seven days.

All faculty teaching courses in which students who test positive for COVID-19 are enrolled will be notified, whether those courses are in-person, remote or hybrid.

State and local health departments are immediately notified of confirmed cases, per state requirements.

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 information about 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.

We will continue reporting new active cases of COVID-19 in our campus community (defined as students or employees who have been on campus and may have infected others) in the Daily Digest email newsletter and on the COVID-19 dashboard, Monday – Friday throughout the spring 2021 semester.
