COVID-19 clusters AOP

East Carolina University on Sept. 14 has identified four COVID-19 clusters within the Alpha Omicron Pi, Alpha Delta Pi and Alpha Omicron Pi sororities and ECU Mail Services.

East Carolina University identified four COVID-19 clusters within the Alpha Omicron Pi, Alpha Delta Pi and Alpha Omicron Pi sororities and ECU Mail Services on Sept. 14.

The university has confirmed five cases in Sigma Sigma Sigma, eight cases in Alpha Delta Pi, five cases in Alpha Omicron Pi and six cases in Mail Services.

Individuals in the clusters were identified and will continue to work closely with the Pitt County Health Department, the cluster notification said. Those identified as a close contact will be notified directly and provided with further guidance.

“Contact tracing has been initiated with direct communication to anyone determined to have been in close contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19,” the cluster notification said. 

A cluster is defined as a minimum of five cases with illness onset or initial positive results within a 14-day period and a plausible epidemiological link between cases. A group will move from the active COVID-19 category after 28 days pass without a new positive case.

Cluster announcements can be viewed on ECU’s Return of Pirate Nation website.

I panicked when I saw the first sore. The medicines couldn't heal the sores completely, my whole life I was entirely desperate. Till I found the natural permanent cure for herpes through Nze Njoku Herbal Home, I felt like I was born-again. You can get rid of herpes from now on, too..
