At the the beginning of October, the institution started randomly testing 5% each of students and employees weekly, per Gov. Mike DeWine’s orders, Christine Reedy, assistant communications director, said Friday.
She declined to say if the college learned about the infected student as a result of the random testing or if the individual lives in residential halls. Releasing those details could reveal the student’s identity, given the size of the college, she said.
The fall quarter will end on Tuesday, Reedy said, and the school hopes to resume in-person instructions when classes resume in January, but the plan’s fluid at the moment.
Antioch is the last area institution that has students living on campus to report a COVID-19 case. All others, including the University of Dayton, Cedarville University, Wright State University and Central State University, have reported cases since August. UD has been affected the most with nearly 1,445 cases, including one death, since August.
All of Wilberforce University’s classes are remote this semester.
