SCHENECTADY – Two COVID positives connected to SUNY Schenectady’s School of Hotel, Culinary Arts and Tourism led Sunday to classes there going remote and some services there shutting down, the school said late Sunday.
The school received word of the two positive tests Sunday. The individuals did not have direct contact with the public, officials said. But, out of an abundance of caution, the school closed its Casola, Van Curler, Pane e Dolci and The Boucherie Curbside takeout services, the school said.
All classes at the School of Hotel, Culinary Arts and Tourism were moved remote for two weeks and the facilities will be deep cleaned.
The individuals who tested positive were last on campus Friday and will not return to the college until they are cleared by Schenectady County Public Health Services.
The school has identified the two individuals’ close contacts at the college and the health department will reach out to those who were in close contact, the school said.
“We remind our campus community to stay vigilant outside of school, practice good hygiene, wear masks and follow social distance guidelines as outlined by the CDC and the New York State Department of Health,” the college said in a release.
