First Ever Case of COVID-19 Reported on Berea College Campus


Berea College President Dr. Lyle Roelofs reports that there was a positive case of COVID-19 on campus:

I regret to inform you that we have a confirmed positive case on campus.  A resident student in Deep Green has tested positive.  That student has been quarantined and contact tracing has been completed.  No close contacts were identified, but a second student is being tested out of an abundance of caution and is being isolated until we have the results.  The common areas in Deep Green that might have been contaminated were thoroughly cleaned and sanitized by FM this morning.  Both students are in good spirits and receiving support from Student Life and other campus offices.

Also announced regarding Intercollegiate Athletics:

Today the USA South, the NCAA Division III conference in which Berea College competes, announced that it is postponing all fall sports until the spring semester.
