For the week leading up to Feb. 10, the Bryant Student Health Center administered 16 tests to symptomatic students, with one positive. Currently five students are in isolation and approximately 30 are in quarantine as close contacts to infected people.  

In the same time period, three faculty and staff reported infections and one reported being a close contact to an infected person. One is currently in isolation. Since the onset of the pandemic, 59 faculty and staff have reported infections and 102 have had to quarantine as close contacts to infected people. 

Weekly routine testing of athletes mandated by the NCAA continues. In this reporting time period, 43 student-athletes were tested and one was found to be positive.   

COVID-19 Case Manager Taylor Panczer noted that the only tested/positive numbers the university can reliably report are those from the Bryant Student Health Center. She also said that isolation and quarantine numbers could differ between reporting agencies due to student being tested elsewhere and then later reporting as PSU students via the Crawford County Health Department. Numbers change daily.
