Thirty-six people at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University tested positive for Covid-19 between Nov. 19 and Dec. 2, 2021 – most on our Prescott, Arizona, campus, where infection rates have been higher across the state.
That case count (36) included 27 at our Prescott, Arizona, campus and nine at our Daytona Beach, Florida, campus. There were no new positive cases at our Worldwide Headquarters campus.
In addition, on the Prescott Campus, 21 people were quarantined after being exposed to the virus during the Nov. 19 to Dec. 2 timeframe. On the Daytona Beach Campus, 13 people were quarantined over the same time period.
