It is fair to say few historical moments will be as momentous to campus life as the outbreak of COVID-19, a global health crisis that led to a decision not seen at Saint Anselm College since the Spanish Flu in 1918. This site will provide updates and resources relating to the College’s response to COVID-19.
Saint Anselm College’s decisions in response to the global pandemic are guided by the following core principles:
- To keep the community safe.
- To do what is right for our students, their parents and families, faculty, staff, and members of the monastery.
- To maintain the perpetuity of Saint Anselm College.

I am writing today with a brief update on our COVID-19 mitigation efforts. This week’s testing returned four positives out of 696 tests. The four cases were among individuals who had been in close contact with those who tested positive last week. They had been quarantined as part of our contract tracing efforts, and therefore it appears this latest outbreak has not spread beyond the original cluster.

I want to share a brief update on our COVID-19 testing results. As you know, we have significantly increased our testing and by early next week every student will have been tested twice since arriving on campus in August. We also are engaging in faculty and staff testing, and soon all those who are working on campus will be offered a coronavirus test.
An Update on COVID-19 Test Results - 09/25/2020
To the Saint Anselm community,
With seven weeks since students first arrived on campus, I wanted to share an update on our COVID-19 mitigation efforts. This week, our testing returned 3 positives and 623 negatives. As you know, we also had 10 positive test results last week, which puts our positivity rate for the semester at 0.38%.
