COVID Updates

This dashboard will be updated as needed with the number of active cases for Gould community members to understand case counts on campus.

As a reminder: 

  • When someone tests positive at Gould all close contacts will be notified.
  • Close contacts are asked to wear their mask, receive negative antigen test(s), and monitor their symptoms.
  • The individual who tests positive for COVID is required to remain off campus for 5 days and may return campus only after testing negative. When they do return they must wear a mask and may not eat in the dining hall for another 5 days.
