Here is the weekly report of confirmed cases of COVID-19 on the Montclair State University campus for the week ending Thursday, September 24:
Two new confirmed cases of COVID-19 were reported. Both are residential students who tested positive on Thursday, September 17.
One is isolating on campus. The other is isolating at home and has not been on campus since September 17. Both students are doing well.
All of their close contacts have been notified and placed in quarantine, as required by our policy.
These new cases bring the total number of confirmed cases on campus since the start of the fall semester to ten (nine students, one employee).
University Health Center Director Patricia Ruiz recommends that all members of the campus community continue to enjoy the outdoors while the weather remains pleasant, follow the general safeguards to reduce the risk of spreading the virus, including wearing face coverings (covering both your mouth and nose), observing social distancing, practicing good hand hygiene and completing the daily Hawk Check self-screening application before coming to the campus.
Anyone who becomes aware of a potential case should encourage the person to complete Hawk Check, and may also share that information confidentially with the University Health Center through the Rave Guardian app or by sending an email to Patricia Ruiz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
