During the last two weeks there have been six positive cases of the novel-coronavirus on the Trinidad campus of Trinidad State Junior College, according to a school official.

The latest member of campus to test positive went into quarantine last week with the Trinidad State Junior College volleyball team. They were the fourth member of the volleyball team to test positive for the virus.

A “large” number of students are in quarantine related to the cases from the past two weeks, according to David Hardman, director of student life, recruiting, outreach and conduct for Trinidad State Junior College.

Students quarantining are moved from in-person instruction to remote learning, do not leave their assigned room or floor, exercise alone and have their food delivered.

The cases on the Trinidad campus do not constitute an “outbreak” as previously reported on social media, said Greg Boyce, a communications specialist for Trinidad State Junior College.
