NYFA NY COVID-19 Health Report

April 8, 2021 5:00pm

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.

Two members of the NYFA community tested positive today for COVID-19. Both individuals were not experiencing symptoms but sought off-campus testing when informed of having had possible exposure to persons with confirmed COVID-19. These two individuals had close contact, off-campus, with two members of the NYFA community, and both of these individuals have been instructed to self-quarantine.

The individuals who tested positive today have been instructed to self-isolate. Both reside in the EHS residence facility. The two community members identified as close contacts to the individuals with confirmed COVID-19 also live 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)

The incidence rates of new cases of COVID-19 is increasing in New York City and New York State. With the rising infection rates in the NYC region and given the concern for the B.1.1.7 variant and its confirmed high rate of transmissibility, please remain 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
