Santa Fe College reported seven positive COVID-19 cases between July 13 and Monday. Out of the seven cases, six were students, and one was an employee.
Santa Fe’s total number of reported positive cases since March 2020 is now 780 — 716 students and 64 employees — according to a report provided by Lela Frye, the college’s director of human resources.
With an increase in reports in the past week, the college reported opening 20 student files, or case investigations, and nine employee files.
Since March 2020, about 31% of the college’s 2,528 total opened files reported a positive COVID-19 test result.
One student case and one employee case may have been on-site while positive, according to the report. Santa Fe, however, reported no community spread or additional exposures from on-campus positive COVID-19 cases.
The college held its last vaccination clinic for the summer Tuesday at the northwest campus’ Building S. Anyone who received their first vaccination dose at Santa Fe’s June 29 vaccination event was invited, and anyone who wanted to receive their first vaccination was welcome, according to a press release.
At Tuesday’s event, five people received their first vaccination dose, and eight people received their second dose, according to Alex Rohlwing, a government operations consultant in region three of the Florida Department of Health.
The report stated that Santa Fe expects the next vaccination opportunity to be held at the beginning of the Fall semester.
