Dear Colleagues –

I write to inform you that an individual working on-campus has been tested for COVID-19 after feeling ill and is self-quarantining while awaiting results.

Out of respect of the privacy of the individual, we are unable to disclose details, however all close contacts of the individual have been contacted and will be informed if the patient tests positive. If you are not contacted directly, it means we do not have reason to think you had close contact with the individual, per CDC’s guidelines.

We ask that all members of our community continue to monitor their health for symptoms every day before arriving at the MBL using the Mandatory Daily Health Screening form as a guideline. Please consult the CDC website for further guidance on how to protect yourself and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Thank you,

Paul Speer
Chief Operating Officer
