NEW BRITAIN – For the fifth straight day, Central Connecticut State University is reporting zero new covid-19 cases.

From Sept. 18 to Sept. 22, there have been no new positive covid-19 cases for resident students and staff, commuter students, or faculty and staff, according to the university’s daily covid-19 dashboard.

Five people are in quarantine and 10 people are currently in isolation. The data is provided by Griffin Health, who is conducting weekly covid-19 tests of the resident students and residence hall staff, in addition to student athletes who are in season and practicing.

The weekly covid-19 tests of random resident students, residence hall staff, and student athletes who are in season and practicing, has increased to 25%, up from the original five to 10% when school started in late August.

School officials emphasized masks are required in all school buildings and public spaces and on campus and off campus students in violation could face consequences, the most severe being complete suspension from school. If a faculty or staff member violates the rules, the Office of Human Resources will make determinations on a case-by-case basis.
