Syracuse College experiences no new coronavirus instances in final 24 hours –

Syracuse, N.Y. — Syracuse University has had no new coronavirus cases in the past 24 hours, according to an update on the school’s Covid-19 dashboard.

Currently, the school has 17 active cases in the Syracuse area among students, staff and faculty. It has two others among people who are not in the Syracuse area.

Overall, the school has had 92 confirmed cases since Aug. 8.

In the past 10 days, the school has administered about 9,000 tests. Since students began returning, SU has administered nearly 50,000 tests on campus.

So far this semester, SU has discovered cases in three dorms and one sorority house. The school quarantined the sorority members. It temporarily locked down parts or all of the dorms until tests came back negative.

As of today, the school has 118 students in quarantine, up 16 from Friday. Those students have potentially been exposed to the virus.

SU’s 37-20 victory against Georgia Tech today was delayed more than 30 minutes while three members of the SU program underwent additional Covid-19 testing out of “an abundance of caution,” the school said.

Syracuse University would not say what triggered the need to retest the three individuals or who alerted it to a potential issue.
