0 New active positive COVID-19 cases reported to the college

 

Through the college contact tracing program, close contacts, have been contacted by the college. The college draws on guidance from the CDC and the Mayo Clinic and considers “close contact” to mean contact within 6 feet for 15 minutes or more. Such close contacts are mitigated if the sick or symptomatic individual was wearing a face covering. The college begins contact tracing upon notification of a positive case and notifies close contacts as needed.

Those who test positive for COVID-19 should notify Campus Security at securitycommand@colum.edu. Students should also notify Student Relations at studentrelations@colum.edu. Please follow college guidance on reporting a case and guidelines on returning to campus after you’ve been sick.
