From Oceana Wilson, Acting Dean of the College

I want to let you know that we have received a report of a new positive case within our community. This employee is currently isolating at home. As a precautionary measure, we also have another employee quarantining at home. 

As with any positive case on our campus, the College is working closely with the employee and the Vermont Department of Health. At this time and based on our knowledge of the case, we believe that the exposure risk to our campus community is very low, if there is any risk at all. As a reminder, if you are not contacted by the Vermont Department of Health, you are not considered a close contact. 

Most importantly, the employee reports feeling well and has no symptoms at this time. We are all wishing this person well.

As always, please check the COVID webpage for the most up-to-date information.

Please recommit to the importance of our shared responsibility for each other in the New Year through adherence to the Commitment of Shared Responsibility, including wearing masks, washing hands, and observing social distancing.
