Coronavirus confirmed cases

Medical professionals are in communication with the individuals to conduct contact tracing and are reaching out to students, faculty and staff who may have had direct contact with them. Those contacted individuals will receive advice regarding self-monitoring and/or self-quarantine based on the nature of the contact. If you are concerned, please call your personal care provider or the Campus Health Center.

  • March 27 - Due to the fact that the vast majority of our employees and students have not been on campus for the last two weeks or more, and out of ongoing concern for patient privacy, we will no longer be posting new COVID-19 case information online.
