Alderson Broaddus University is warning the campus community about a “significant and unprecedented spike” in positive coronavirus tests.

Ninety-three students and one employee have tested positive for the coronavirus since Feb. 15. Sixty-four students are in isolation, in which 49 people are isolating on campus.

Officials said they are hopeful early identification will allow the university to contain the virus and slow the possible spread. They also said campus community members should limit personal travel and practice pandemic-related protocols away from campus.

According to the institution, 163 employees and 65 health science students will be fully vaccinated by the end of the week.
