Del Mar College has received information that one student and six employees have tested positive for COVID-19. The student was immediately instructed to self-isolate. Since the student has not been to campus, no others were affected in this case.
Two of the employees from the West Campus were instructed to self-isolate; in one of those cases, one additional employee was instructed to quarantine. In the other case, it was determined that no one had close contact with the individual while on campus. The affected areas on the West Campus are being disinfected.
The other four employees from the East Campus were instructed to self-isolate. It was determined that no one had close contact with them since the employees have not been on campus since winter break, and the cases are not related.
