Willamette announces eighth COVID-19 case
Willamette’s reopening committee sent out an email on Sept. 23 at 6:53pm, notifying that a student who lives off-campus tested positive for COVID-19. The student was last on campus Friday, Sept. 18. Anyone who was identified as having close contact with the student has been told to quarantine and will follow up with Marion County’s contact tracer.
The reopening committee stressed in their email that the Higher Education Coordinating Commission and Oregon Health Authority require confidentiality for students and staff who test positive for COVID-19, which limits the details they can provide.
Staff who test positive for COVID-19 are asked to contact Danita Chapin in Human Resources at <dkchapin>. Students who test positive should notify Tori Ruiz in Student Affairs at <truiz>.
Willamette announced its seventh COVID-19 case on Sept. 19.
