BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Daemen College President Gary Olson announced Saturday a Daemen student is under quarantine after traveling on a bus with a person who tested positive for COVID-19 in Monroe County.

Olson said the student is asymptomatic and the college is following the CDC's guidelines to monitor the student.

The Department of Health will reach out to any individuals at the college who may have come in contact with the student if necessary.

The student will be tested for COVID-19 and the college will be notified of the results.

"To ensure the safety and well-being of the Daemen community, deep cleaning and additional sterilization is being done across campus including residential facilities," said Olson. "Let’s make sure that we all follow our own protocols for cleanliness and avoiding close contact with others."
