Many of you may have heard that on Friday we received test results indicating some students had tested positive for COVID-19. I am writing to let you know that the laboratory re-ran the samples, and the results were inconclusive. Because we knew of no apparent cause for this large number of positive results and because we had had so few positive cases on campus, we then re-tested.
We have just learned that the repeat tests are negative for COVID-19. Students affected by this will receive a separate communication from Health Service. The positive tests will be removed from our official campus tally.
Thank you for continuing to keep us all healthy and safe.
