Confirmed Cases Report

Left Nav


Confirmed cases of Covid-19 at Berry College are added to this list when a new positive test is reported. 

Cases are reported only if the individual is present on the campus during the 14-day period spanning their infection. Thus, some students or employees who were away from campus during the summer may have tested positive for Covid-19 during this period and not be included in this table. 

The table identifies the number of students and employees quarantined as the result of direct contacts on campus.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

In early August, all students and employees of the college were tested for Covid-19. Most students were tested before they returned to campus using a home-based procedure. Students and employees testing positive at home are not included in this table. There were 29 such cases. Those who were already on campus and tested positive are included in the table and indicated as such. 

Following a positive test, an infected individual on campus is interviewed by a contact tracing team from the college, in accordance with public health and HIPAA standards. The interview focuses on the history of symptoms, travel and direct contacts with others (less than 6 feet away for more than 15 minutes). An isolation period is established and direct contacts on campus are contacted regarding quarantine obligations. Affected facilities on campus are cleaned and sanitized as needed. The college has set aside special areas for isolation purposes. 

Although the actual spread of Covid-19 has been contained on campus thus far, the number of students quarantined in a few instances demonstrates the importance of practicing appropriate preventative measures.
