BOURBONNAIS – It has been one week since Olivet Nazarene University announced an outbreak of 40 cases of the pandemic on their Bourbonnais campus.  Since that time, total active cases have risen by one.

A week later, those totals have risen by one, bringing Friday’s totals to 41.  Active cases had fallen to 38 earlier this week.  The number does not reflect the total cases to date at University, which remains under the record of those within the Administration.

On October 3rd, the University announced new restrictions for students on campus in an effort to mitigate the virus.

Among the status of the 41 now in isolation, 21 students are isolating on campus while 20 are in isolation off-campus.
