Yesterday, Vice President for College Life and Dean of Students Anne Ehrlich sent out a campus-wide email updating the College community on the current COVID-19 situation.

Over the past week, there were six positive cases among students, bringing the semester total up to 15. She clarified that these cases were restrained to one student group; the positive cases are in quarantine and mitigation strategies have been put in place for the rest of the group.  

“We are confident in our ability to contain and isolate these cases, and our overall campus positivity rate remains very low,” she said.

Ehrlich added that mitigation strategies will be put in place campus-wide if there is a sign of widespread transmission. She encouraged students to get tested for free at Health Services or the testing site if they are concerned.
