We learned last night (April 5th) that one member of the TUJ faculty and staff has tested positive for COVID-19. They report that they do not have severe symptoms, will be staying at home, and that a person at the health center will check on them every day.
The person was last in the building on March 26th. Those people with whom the person had contact are being separately contacted, but no students are in the group.
While the coronavirus cannot remain viable on surfaces after a few days, out of an abundance of caution we are arranging for a thorough cleaning of those areas the person involved visited while in the building. The building remains open for essential staff.
Please remember the importance of social distancing, hand washing, and cough etiquette. My thoughts go out to the person who has been infected and also to all of us in the TUJ Community.
