Dear Rust College Family,

In accordance with our policies regarding COVID-19, I want to alert you that an employee of Rust College tested positive for COVID-19.  We learned of this information over the weekend.  The other employees in that office have since been tested.  One test result has come back negative and two are still pending the results. The employees whose results are pending are quarantined and have not returned to the campus. Their office was appropriately sanitized by the Physical Plant staff.  If the other employees in the office test positive, we will let you know and ensure that any affected parties are appropriately tested.  At this point, we know that the employee who already tested positive had limited contact with others outside the division and no further action is required.  Please pray for the speedy recovery of our colleague.  Thank you. 

Ivy R. Taylor
