St. Lawrence maintains this page to inform the Laurentian and local communities about new lab-confirmed COVID-19 cases involving St. Lawrence students, faculty, and staff.
When the University receives a positive test result, our first contact must be to St. Lawrence County Public Health, and that county government office must take the lead on response. The St. Lawrence information shared on this dashboard, which will be updated regularly, reflects those cases that already have been communicated to, and coordinated with, Public Health.
No identifying information will be shared about a person who tests positive for COVID-19, to comply with federal health privacy regulations. Any individuals who have had a risk of exposure will be contacted directly through contact tracing.
Not every single report of a positive COVID-19 case will warrant an email to campus; however, the community will be informed of any significant updates.
For more information about our quarantine procedures, visit the Containment and Quarantine page.
