At the moment, there are four positive cases in isolation and 14 students in quarantine, compared to two positive cases and zero students in quarantine last week. The two new positives are both from March 2 and are both students. 61 positive cases have recovered, up six from last week. 66,201 total tests have been administered, 1,171 (or 1.8%) of which have been inconclusive.
Members of the testing program are still receiving two PCR tests and one antigen test a week.
There are 2,704 cases in Kennebec County as of March 1, according to the Maine CDC.
The first of two modified spring breaks of the semester is coming up on March 8 and 9. These four-day weekends replace the regular week-long spring break, with the expectation that students will stay in Maine and remain on their testing schedule.
The College has been at the yellow health code level since the start of the semester. This means lower dining hall capacities, face masks required within dorms, increased cleaning, and remote learning for classes above 50 students.
Clubs were given the green light to operate on the yellow level on March 2. They had not been able to meet in person until Feb. 24, when they were given permission to meet given that any food they provided was commercially individually packaged.
