LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) — The University of Lynchburg announced Friday morning the Hornet community’s current coronavirus count has declined to five active, positive cases among students and staff members.
According to the University of Lynchburg, as of Friday, Sept. 18, there are three active COVID-19 cases among students — one on-campus and two off-campus — and two active cases among faculty and staff.
Friday’s number includes six less active student cases than the number reported by the school on Tuesday, Sept. 15.
In addition, the university says 32 people — 15 on-campus and 17 off-campus — are currently in quarantine as of Friday.
Meanwhile, school officials say 289 cases that emerged since students returned to campus have been resolved, which means those people received medical clearance to leave quarantine or isolation and return to their usual classes and activities.
“Way to go, Hornets! Keep up the good work! Wear your mask, wash your hands, check your temperature, and practice social distancing! C’mon, we can do this” the University of Lynchburg wrote on Facebook on Friday morning.
