Del Mar College has received information that one student and one employee have tested positive for COVID-19. Both were immediately instructed to self-isolate. The cases are not related. In the student case, two additional students were instructed to quarantine. The employee has not been on campus since early January, so no others were affected.

The affected area on the West Campus has been disinfected.   

The health and safety of our students and employees remain our top priority at Del Mar College. All College facilities remain closed to the public. Only restricted access for approved employees and designated students is allowed at this time.
