We have seen an increase in the number of positive COVID-19 cases over the past several days. The dashboard will continue to be updated on Tuesdays and Fridays. We wanted to alert the community that the number of positive cases has increased since Friday. 

As a reminder, we have an excellent supply of KN95 masks and encourage students to pick up a couple this week. Masks can be obtained at Feather House between 9:30-11:30 a.m. and 2-4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Faculty and staff are asked to complete the KN95 mask request form, and they will be sent via campus mail.

Campus testing for symptomatic students is available at Bailey Health Center between 9:30-11:30 a.m. and 1:30-3 p.m. Students who are not symptomatic but who would like testing should plan to attend one of the two testing days for PCR testing each week. Testing is available Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. in the game room area (third floor) of Kirby Sports Center. All PCR testing is by appointment only, scheduled via an Aura account. 

Students who receive a positive test result after 7 p.m. and are not close enough to return home should plan to isolate in place until the next morning, when staff will reassign them to an area hotel. Isolating in place means remaining in your room and masking except when sleeping. Students should not plan to visit the dining halls or have friends visit their room.
