Santa Fe College reported no positive student or employee COVID-19 cases between May 25 and Monday.
Since March 2020, Santa Fe College has reported a total of 757 positive cases for students and employees — resulting in about a 30.84% positivity rate out of the 2,455 case files opened, according to a report provided by Jen Ambrose, the college’s director of marketing and communications.
Out of all positive cases, 699 were student cases, according to the report, which corrected a previously reported student positive case that was incorrectly reported — the total number of student positive cases was 700 the previous week, according to a May 18 to May 24 report provided by the college’s communications manager Jay Anderson.
A total of two case files were opened — both were student files, according to the report provided by Ambrose.
Santa Fe College does not require students or employees to routinely test for COVID-19, Anderson wrote in an email.
However, the college encourages students and employees to report COVID-19 symptoms and follow the college’s COVID-19 safety protocols, which include staying home when feeling sick, showing symptoms or after possibly being exposed to COVID-19, Anderson wrote.
