For the week leading up to March 3, the Bryant Student Health Center administered 19 tests to symptomatic students, with one positive. Currently two students are in isolation and none are in quarantine as close contacts to infected people.  

In the same time period, one faculty/staff member reported an infection and zero new close contacts were identified. One is currently in isolation, and none are in quarantine. Since the onset of the pandemic, 63 faculty and staff have reported infections and 103 have had to quarantine as close contacts to infected people. 

Weekly routine testing of athletes mandated by the NCAA continues. In this reporting time period, 43 student-athletes were tested and zero were found to be positive.   

Bryant Student Health Center Director of Operations Rita Girth noted that the only tested/positive numbers the university can reliably report are those from the Bryant Student Health Center. She also said that isolation and quarantine numbers could differ between reporting agencies due to student being tested elsewhere and then later reporting as PSU students via the Crawford County Health Department. Numbers change daily.
