14 Students at SBU Contract COVID-19

35 new COVID cases WERE REPORTED in Cattaraugus County thursday, including 14 students at Saint Bonaventure University. The 14 new positive tests on the university campus bring to 62 the number of students who have tested positive this week.
St. Bonaventure President Dennis DePerro notified students and staff Thursday night he has suspended in-person classes. He said the university’s active caseload has increased to a point where staff can no longer care for any more positive students than are now in isolation on campus. The total COVID-19 positive tests in Cattaraugus County is now 762.
There won’t be any school at Portville Central again today. School administrators, already planning for a shortened week of Thanksgiving, learned Wednesday night that COVID-19 had once again entered its halls.
Seventh-graders were released from attending school yesterday and today but are “expected to join their regularly-scheduled classes online.” Eighth- through 12th-graders, as well as elementary students, continue their in-school learning.
