Southeastern Student Tests Positive for COVID-19
March 31, 2020
Southeastern has been made aware that one of our students who resided on campus has tested positive for COVID-19.
The student resided in Taylor Hall but is believed to have not been on campus since March 21. Southeastern is working with regional health officials to take appropriate steps including communicating with other Taylor Hall residents.
It is understandable that this news is concerning to our campus community, with the quickly expanding number of cases across the region and state, it was expected that there would eventually be cases on campus. This is one of the reasons Southeastern moved quickly to transition to remote classes and work, limit social gatherings, encourage social distancing, and encourage residential students who could do so to return home. The health and safety of our students, faculty and staff was and remains our primary concern.
As a reminder, information on prevention tips and what to do if you begin to feel sick can be found on our Coronavirus site in the FAQs and “Staying Safe” section.
For everyone else, please continue to remain at home in compliance with the Governor’s Order. For more information regarding updates from Southeastern and campus-specific information, visit www.southeastern.edu/coronavirus.
