On Saturday, NC State notified the university community through its WolfAlert notification system that a COVID-19 cluster had been identified within the SKEMA program on Centennial Campus.
A cluster is defined by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services as five or more COVID-19 cases in close proximity to each other. This is the first cluster that NC State has identified since the start of spring semester classes on Jan. 19.
The SKEMA business school is a globally-focused research and business institution offering both undergraduate and graduate international business programs at NC State’s Centennial Campus, a research park located just below South Campus. Exact details have not been provided by NC State regarding the status of students or staff members involved in the cluster.
Since the start of on-campus move-in on Jan. 16 to Jan. 21, NC State has reported 156 total positive cases, according to their COVID-19 data tracker. During that time span, the number of available quarantine beds has dropped from 278 to 253, a decrease of 25.
The school’s data tracker is only updated on Tuesdays and Fridays, so any potential changes from this recent cluster have yet to be reported. ●
