Update on the COVID-19 pandemic response on campus

Dear Allegheny College community,

I am writing with an update on the COVID-19 pandemic response on campus.

Thank you for scheduling — and showing up for — your biweekly tests! Our daily COVID-19 positivity rate has remained under 0.3% since fall semester classes began. As of today, we currently have zero (0) active cases among students and one (1) among employees. As a reminder, you can find the latest information on the COVID-19 dashboard, which is updated daily Monday through Friday.

COVID on campus since August 23:

  • 1 students has tested positive for COVID-19
  • 3 employees have tested positive for COVID-19
  • 50 total close contacts have been identified
  • 0 close contacts tested positive
  • 3,815 students have been tested since the first day of class

Blue & Gold Weekend: There will be many visitors on campus this weekend. All visitors must be masked inside, with a few rare exceptions of performers who are vaccinated and will be tested upon arrival on campus. For the safest visit, please enjoy the company of visitors outside.

Illness: If you feel ill, wear a mask and come to Wise Center for a COVID-19 test.
