NYFA NY COVID-19 Health Report

April 9, 2021 4:00pm

Dear NYFA NY Community,

As part of keeping our community informed of the incidence of COVID-19 at the NY Campus, we send you this notification.

One member of the NYFA community tested positive today for COVID-19. This individual sought off-campus testing upon experiencing COVID-19 related symptoms. This individual, prior to symptom onset, had been adhering to self-quarantine directives, issued after having been exposed to persons with confirmed COVID-19. This individual has not been on campus nor has this individual had close contact with any member of the NYFA community during the infectious period. The individual has been instructed to self-isolate.

This individual resides in the EHS residence facility. EHS has been notified and the facility managers are taking the appropriate actions to prevent the spread of illness within the EHS community. For questions, please contact the NYFA Housing Coordinator, Linda Gilbert via email (linda.gilbert@nyfa.edu)

As the B.1.1.7 variant becomes dominant throughout the US and, specifically in states in the Northeast, please be vigilant in following the health and hygiene guidelines noted below. This variant is highly transmissible and can easily spread between infected persons to those with whom they have had close contact.

Please stay vigilant by:

  • strictly following personal hygiene guidelines;
  • practicing physical distancing (keeping a 6 ft/2m distance from others);
  • wearing masks when venturing outside your homes; and
  • staying home when you are sick.

In abiding by these practices, you will limit your exposure to the virus and you will be doing all you can to stay healthy and protect the safety of our community.

For more tips on staying healthy and for guidance on how to access care should you become ill, please visit NYFA COVID-19 Health and Campus Guidelines and Information.

For ongoing updates of the incidence of illness on the NY NYFA Campus, please consult the NY Campus Dashboard.

Also, please report positive COVID-19 test results to:

Faculty and Staff: Domingo Morales, Associate Director of Human Resources, Domingo.morales@nyfa.edu

Students: Sandra Schein, Director of Student Health and Wellness, Sandra.schein@nyfa.edu

We thank you and applaud you for your cooperation!

With gratitude and appreciation,
NYFA NY COVID-19 Response Team
