University reports seven students in isolation, three positives at health center 

Pittsburg State University reports that 34 symptomatic students were tested for COVID-19 at the Bryant Student Health Center between Nov. 10 and Nov. 16. Of those, three were positive. Currently, seven students are in isolation after off-campus testing.

In the same period, no faculty or staff member reported an infection. The health center also administered seven COVID-19 vaccines in the same seven days.

Pittsburg State will take a reporting hiatus for the week of Thanksgiving when classes are not in session and offices are closed, and will report two weeks of data on Dec. 1. 

Bryant Student Health Center Director of Operations Rita Girth noted that the only tested/positive numbers the university can reliably report are those from the health center. Isolation numbers can differ between reporting agencies due to students being tested elsewhere and then later reporting as PSU students via the Crawford County Health Department. >

Quarantine numbers are managed solely by the Crawford County Health Department. Numbers change daily.
