BUCKHANNON — For the second consecutive day, West Virginia Wesleyan College officials announced a member of the college campus community has tested positive for COVID-19.

According to a press release issued by Talley Sergent, Wesleyan’s chief development and marketing officer, Tuesday’s case is the second confirmed case on campus this week.

“A second member of the West Virginia Wesleyan College community has tested positive for COVID-19,” John Bohman, WVWC Supervisor of Safety and Security, said in a statement Tuesday. “The college is following all safety and public health protocols; the individual remains in isolation.”

“The safety of each and every member of the campus community is the college’s highest priority,” Bohman added. “We continue to urge all members of the Wesleyan campus community to follow all safety and public health protocols outlined by the Upshur-Buckhannon Health Department and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control.”

The first case was announced Monday and is part of the college’s efforts to transparently address COVID-19 on campus.
