Dear Faculty, Staff and Students:
Yesterday, we identified a cluster of COVID cases at Village Green. A “cluster” is defined by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services as five or more cases within 14 days that are deemed to be in close proximity or location, or are epidemiologically linked. There are currently six cases in this cluster.
We have completed contact tracing with direct communication to anyone known to have been in close contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19. All students testing positive as part of this cluster are isolated and close contacts are quarantined.
Let’s continue to diligently work together to help control the spread of the virus:
Wear masks covering your nose and mouth
Wait 6 feet apart and avoid close contact with others
Practice good hygiene by washing your hands or using hand sanitizer
Keep in mind that employees who experience symptoms or believe they may have been exposed to the virus, must follow the guidelines previously shared that require notification to Human Resources. In addition, if it is determined that an employee was potentially exposed to the virus in the WPU community, they will be contacted as soon as possible and provided with guidance regarding their work and presence on campus.
Thank you for your continued vigilance.
William Peace University
