Currently, the student is asymptomatic and the college is following the Centers for Disease Control guidelines to closely monitor the student’s symptoms. If it is necessary, the Department of Health will reach out to individuals at the college with whom the student has had contact and initiate planned protocols for self-quarantining and isolation. Daemen will follow the Erie County Health Department’s protocols on having the student tested for the coronavirus. The college community will be notified of the test results as soon as they become available. During this time, the college requests that the student’s privacy be respected. To ensure the safety and well-being of the Daemen community, deep cleaning and additional sterilization is being done across campus including residential facilities. Let’s make sure that we all follow our own protocols for cleanliness and avoiding close contact with others.
