FRC employee tests positive; but had been away from campus for a while

Feather River College President Kevin Trutna announced that FRC was notified last night, Nov. 18, that one of its part-time, off campus employees tested positive for COVID-19. The individual has been out of the area since before last weekend and tested yesterday because of exposure to a close contact (who later turned out negative). The positive test result came from an out-of-the-area medical facility late yesterday. Trutna said there has been little, to no, contact with FRC in the past week due to the individual’s absence from Plumas County.

According to Trutna, on-campus contact with the employee has not occurred in over a week, and even while working, the employee had limited contact with FRC students and the public. At this time, contact tracing has not identified any need for any FRC students/employees to take any action or get tested due to the limited interaction.

“I am passing along this information, while protecting the rights of the individual, so the campus is aware of the latest developments,” Trutna said in his statement released today.
