Santa Fe reported 99 COVID-19 cases from students and employees from Jan. 31 to Monday. 

Five employees and 94 students tested positive for the virus.

There were 40 fewer cases compared to last week, said Lela Frye, SF human resources director.

This week’s cases make up about 5% of the 1,893 total SF cases since March 2020, Frye said.

SF announced its second voluntary COVID-19 vaccine incentive, similar to the one in Fall 2021 that resulted in over 2,700 people getting vaccinated, according to the Santa Fe website.

SF will pay students and employees $60 if they receive 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 be eligible to collect additional rewards through a random drawing later this semester. 

The college is hosting a vaccination event March 1 from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in Building S, Room 29.
