“Today’s increase in positive cases of COVID-19 includes 10 new positive cases among students at St. John Fisher College,” Dr. Michael Mendoza said. “My team and I are working closely with college officials to contain the spread, currently through contact tracing and testing. While we have not been able to identify a single event responsible for the increase in cases on campus, it appears that multiple casual gatherings among unmasked students in dormitory rooms is a major contributing factor.”
