scott hall

On Oct. 28, Scott Hall became the fifth on-campus residence hall to undergo COVID-19 testing after routine wastewater testing detected SARS-CoV-2. Only one individual out of 176 tested positive for the virus. 

The day after it was announced that all Scott Hall residents would undergo testing, a NinerNotice was sent out alerting the community of an unrelated five-person cluster involving students in a private off-campus residence. The University only sends out reports of off-campus cases if they involve a cluster, defined as as a minimum of five individuals with symptoms or positive results within a 14-day period and a plausible epidemiologic linkage. 

As of Oct. 30, there are 43 active on-campus cases and the Student Health Center’s coronavirus testing has a 1.4% positivity rate. These numbers may spike following Halloween weekend.
