Santa Fe College COVID-19 update: Four positive cases were reported for the last two weeks

The college’s total number of reported positive cases is now 773

Santa Fe College reported four positive COVID-19 cases between June 29 and Monday. There were two student and two employee cases.

The college’s total number of reported positive cases since March 2020 is now 773, according to a report provided by Lela Frye, the college’s director of human resources. Santa Fe has reported a total of 710 student cases and 63 employee cases.

The college opened 10 student files, or case investigations, and four employee files, according to the report. Out of the college’s 2,499 total opened case files, about 31% reported a positive COVID-19 test result.

The college reported two employees may have been on-site while positive for the virus, but there were no additional exposures or community spread from on-campus positive COVID-19 cases reported.

Santa Fe will host a vaccination event July 20 at the first-floor lobby of Building S on its northwest campus. Anyone who wants to receive their first vaccination is welcome, and anyone who received their first vaccination dose at the college’s June 29 vaccination clinic is invited, according to the report. Consent forms can be completed before the event and are accessible through the Florida Department of Health’s website.

The college expects it to be the last vaccination opportunity on campus until the beginning of the Fall semester.
