Santa Fe College reported 54 positive COVID-19 cases from students and employees from Feb 8. to Monday.
Five employees and 49 students tested positive for the virus.
There were 45 fewer cases compared to last week, SF human resources director Lela Frye said.
This week’s cases make up 2.5% of the 1,947 total SF cases since March 2020, Frye said.
SF announced their second voluntary COVID-19 vaccine incentive, similar to the one in Fall 2021 that resulted in more than 2,700 people getting vaccinated, on Jan. 28, according to the Santa Fe website.
SF will give students and employees $60 if they received their second shot of Pfizer or Moderna, a single shot of Johnson & Johnson or a booster between Nov. 1 and March 20.
Students and employees can sign up for the incentive and have their vaccination or booster status verified in person.
Students and employees will also be eligible to collect additional rewards through a random drawing later this semester.
The college is hosting a vaccination event on March 1 from 11:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. in Building S, Room 29.
