Anyone who has come into close contact with the infected persons have been or will be notified and advised on the appropriate health and safety protocols.

Persons within that category are instructed not to return to campus until they have finished their isolation period. To protect the privacy of all individuals involved, SRU will release no details regarding the identity of any persons.

An initial COVID case investigation will begin to determine campus exposure. SRU will assist the Pennsylvania Department of Health with contact tracing on campus. Notifications will be made to University members of possible exposures if the person testing positive was on campus while infectious. All contacts deemed at risk of exposure will be required to self-quarantine.

SRU's COVID Response Team meets regularly to review all virus-related information and statistics with more detailed information to be shared on this webpage should it become necessary.
