NEW BRITAIN – There were two self-reported positive covid-19 cases confirmed by Central Connecticut State University on Monday.

The university’s daily covid-19 dashboard shows that one New Britain commuter student was tested positive and one out-of-town commuter student was also tested positive. Both students self-reported and so far, there has been no reported new cases for faculty and staff for the last week.

As of Monday, two people are quarantined, and two people are in isolation.

For the week of Nov. 1 to Nov. 7, 291 resident students and staff were tested by Griffin Health. Out of the 291, three people were tested positive, making it a 1.03% positivity rate. In self-reported cases, there were two resident students/staff who tested positive for coronavirus, one New Britain commuter student, two out of town commuters, and four staff members.

The university contracted with Griffin Health to conduct weekly covid-19 tests of 25% of the resident students and residence hall staff, as well as student athletes who are in season and practicing.

School officials emphasized that masks are required in all school buildings and public spaces and 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.
