Southern Student Tests Positive for COVID-19
To our extended Southern family,
A student on Southern’s Logan campus has tested positive for COVID-19. While our fall 2020 semester is underway using virtual teleconferencing, several of our labs are open for limited student use. One of our labs was affected, and students who have been in that particular lab, or who have potentially been exposed, are being contacted, and will be asked to test for COVID-19 as a precaution.
The affected lab is being deep cleaned and will be closed for two weeks. Prior to the start of our semester, Southern mandated that anyone on our campuses was to wear a mask and maintain proper physical distancing. This policy will continue to be enforced and monitored at each of our locations.
The health and safety of everyone at Southern, whether as a student, faculty, staff, or community member, has been our guiding force as we navigate this precarious time, and was at the forefront of our thoughts as we entered this new semester. Our college will continue to be vigilant in ensuring proper procedures are followed, and decisions are being made daily with the health and safety of our community in mind.
