EWC notified of COVID cases
Eastern Wyoming College in Torrington was notified of three separate positive student COVID cases late this week. One student resides on-campus and the other two students reside off-campus. The three cases appear to be unrelated.
Public Health officials are working directly with this student to determine contact tracing and will directly contact any individuals who are determined to be at risk due to close contact. Close contact refers to an individual who was within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes.
It is imperative that individuals remain diligent and carefully follow all public health orders and safety measures. As a reminder, if you have symptoms of illness, or develop COVID-19 symptoms while on campus, isolate yourself immediately and contact a health care professional. Please remember to continue to practice good hygiene, social distancing, and wear a face covering or mask at all times. All students, employees, and visitors are required to wear masks or face coverings in all EWC facilities. Any updates will continue to be posted on the EWC website at the following link: https://ewc.wy.edu/alerts/.
