COVID-19 Update—September 10, 2021

To the Bowdoin community,
As a result of yesterday’s PCR testing, one new student has tested positive for COVID-19. They are in isolation and supported by our isolation case management team.  Thank you for your continued commitment to wearing masks, testing, and other appropriate health and safety measures. Yesterday we tested 1115 students, faculty, and staff and today we tested 861 students.  Next week we will start testing faculty and staff on campus once a week.  This increased testing has allowed us to isolate positive individuals earlier which has substantially slowed down our rates of transmission. 
Have a good weekend,
Mike Ranen
