An unidentified female staff member at Milligan College in Tennessee has tested positive for COVID-19, the school learned Thursday. The individual, who works in Milligan’s business office, was last on campus March 20. She is “doing well,” Milligan reported earlier today.

This is the first confirmed case of COVID-19 directly related to the Milligan community, the school said. As of Thursday, there were 957 cases of COVID-19, or coronavirus, in Tennessee.

Milligan has not had on-campus courses since March 6, when spring break started. After spring break was extended by one week, as many staff as possible began working remotely March 19. On March 20, the decision was made to extend remote learning through the end of the spring semester.

“We are doing everything we can to support this individual and others through what is undoubtedly a difficult time,” said Dr. Bill Greer, Milligan’s president.

The individual is self-isolating at home in accordance with guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Tennessee Department of Health.

People who have had close contact with the staff member are being notified by the Tennessee Department of Health in accordance with standard public health principles. The impacted offices are closed for appropriate cleaning.

Academic courses continue online, but the campus remains closed to students, faculty, staff, and the public.
