Today marks the first day of in-person classes at Willamette University. At 10:35 a.m., the Willamette University Reopening Committee sent a mass email to students stating, "an individual working on campus tested positive for the Coronavirus." The email reports that the individual lives off campus, and has been in isolation since Saturday. Marion County Public Health is "coordinating contact tracing."

As of now, it is unclear how and if this news will impact university procedures.
