JMU Health Update - April 1


Dear JMU Family,

Update on Cases
The university observed 14 new positive cases of COVID-19 at the University Health Center yesterday. With 5 cases considered “recovered,” the total number of active cases is now at 65. The number of open quarantine and isolation beds is 405 out of 434. More information can be found on the university’s Stop the Spread dashboard.

If you have had COVID-19 before, you can still get it again or be a carrier of the virus. All community members need to practice preventative measures, such as wearing a mask when around other people (even outside), washing your hands, maintaining physical distance and disinfecting surface areas.

Yesterday’s walk-in testing at Festival was well-received, with 78 people tested. This testing will continue on Wednesdays through April 28.
