Sixty-three people at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University tested positive for Covid-19 during the timeframe Sept. 3-9. That case count included 55 at our Daytona Beach, Florida, campus and eight people at our Prescott, Arizona, campus. There were no new positive cases at our Worldwide Headquarters campus this past week.

In addition, on the Daytona Beach Campus, 59 people are currently in quarantine after being exposed to the virus. On the Prescott Campus, 15 individuals are in quarantine.

Embry-Riddle is continuing to emphasize two key preventive strategies:

  • Wear your mask at all times inside Embry-Riddle buildings and aircraft.
  • Get vaccinated as soon as possible, if you have not already done so.

Please review our quarantine and isolation protocols, which are based on U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance.
