Marist College scrambles to trace, contain another COVID-19 outbreak
Marist College is scrambling to trace and contain another coronavirus outbreak stemming from an off-campus gathering two weekends ago.
As of Sunday, there were 25 positive COVID-19 cases, with four students in isolation on campus.
Marist says it is now placing a temporary precautionary quarantine in place for several of the Fulton townhouse resident buildings. According to the school's website, that means the students are in proximity to someone who is awaiting a test result after being in close contact with a positive person.
The college is also in a code yellow, which means there is increased surveillance testing, a reduction in the capacity of on-campus spaces and campus social gatherings may be even stricter than New York state guidelines.
