COVID-19 Campus Update: In-Person Dining Paused, November 2, 2020


Dear Marist community,

Over the weekend, we identified multiple positive COVID-19 cases among the student body through our testing protocols. In the last 24 hours, our medical and contact tracing teams have been identifying and testing those who could have been exposed to COVID-19. While we are awaiting the test results, the students who tested positive will be isolated and quarantined.

Until further notice, in-person classes will continue as scheduled and out of an abundance of caution, we are going to implement temporary measures as follows:

  • All in-person dining will be paused. Students are encouraged to eat in their rooms with their roommates.
  • Leo Hall will continue with its precautionary quarantine.
  • James J. McCann Recreation Center will remain closed until further notice.

Information on cases related to Marist College is always available on our dashboard, which is updated daily, generally by 5 pm. We will continue to provide additional updates on the status of our campus and community as more details become available. If you see any Marist community member violating our COVID-19-related Code of Conduct, please call (845) 575-MASK.

Thank you for all you are doing to help “protect the pack.”
