Student Tests Positive for COVID-19

Published: October 23, 2020

Jefferson Community College (JCC) received confirmation today, October 23, 2020, that one of our students has tested positive for COVID-19. The college is assisting Jefferson County Department of Public Health in their contact tracing efforts to identify any possible exposure risks to other students, faculty or staff. Campus faculty, staff and students are encouraged to answer their phones, should they receive a call from “NYS Contact Tracing” (518-387-9993). 

The student is registered for on-campus classes and therefore was tested as part of Jefferson Community College’s surveillance testing plan, which was implemented in late September. Increased cleaning and disinfection practices as well as social distancing in all offices have also been implemented. This is the second positive COVID-19 case for the College, with the first being reported on October 2, 2020. The College is committed to ensuring the safety of our faculty, students and staff and appreciates the support and hard work of all involved to maintain these efforts.
