Case tracking: one community member tested positive

Tuesday, March 23, 2021

On Thursday, March 12, 2021,  one individual who had visited our campus tested positive for COVID-19. We confirmed information on this positive case on Monday, March 22. The individual has remained in self-isolation since their positive test and officials contacted all close-contacts.

If you have not been identified as a close contact of the individual, you should continue to follow our on-campus safety procedures including our campus check in screening daily, and self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 and seek testing if needed.

We take the privacy of individuals extremely seriously. In reporting on positive cases, the University will seek to protect the private health information of individuals. You should check our disclosure protocol for what to do if someone reveals to you that they have tested positive for COVID-19.
