Heading into students’ final days on campus before traveling home for winter break, 20 people at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University tested positive for Covid-19, Dec. 3-9.

That case count included 12 at our Prescott, Arizona, campus and eight at our Daytona Beach, Florida, campus. There were no new positive cases at our Worldwide Headquarters campus.

In addition, on the Prescott Campus, 14 people were quarantined after being exposed to the virus during the Dec. 3-9 timeframe. On the Daytona Beach Campus, 15 people were quarantined over the same period.

The troublesome Omicron variant of Covid-19, which has now been detected in 19 states, has also now been found in Yavapai County, where the Prescott Campus is located, health officials have reported. As the fall semester comes to a close and many of you head home to see loved ones, be sure to stay as safe as possible. Please consider getting your Covid-19 vaccination or booster if you have not already done so.
