Two new positive cases among our students were identified this weekend.

To the Oxy Community:

In keeping with our protocols, I write to inform you that there were two new positive COVID-19 cases among our students identified this past weekend. 

Both positive individuals are in isolation for 10 days, one in their off campus home and one in Berkus housing.  Those who had close contact (less than 6 feet for 10 minutes or more) with the individuals who tested positive have been notified and are also in quarantine in Berkus and at their homes. If you have not been contacted about these cases, you have not been identified as being at risk of exposure.

As a reminder to everyone, while vaccines access is up and more facilities are open, we are not out of the woods yet. It is important to continue to mask, socially distance, maintain small social groups, work remotely when possible, get tested regularly,limit travel, and be vigilant about your health and the health of those around you. Thank you all for your continued effort to keep Oxy safe.

Be well,
