When will we learn who tested positive for COVID-19?

Names of individuals confirmed to have contracted the COVID-19 virus will not be released, in compliance with federal privacy laws. Close contacts of anyone suspected of having been exposed will be notified directly by the Erie County Department of Health.

Ensuring the anonymity of an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19 is paramount. If you are aware of a person’s identity, please respect their privacy so they can focus completely on their health. The university will provide any support it can during what is surely a difficult time for such individuals.
