Keuka College has decided that it will continue with remote learning through the end of the semester.

Earlier this month, Keuka College said it would use distance learning for two weeks, out of an abundance of caution, after a dozen students tested positive for the coronavirus.

Keuka College officials say that they will temporarily close campus operations as they deal with an increase of COVID-19 cases.

A statement released by the college said that as of noon on Thursday, Yates County Public Health confirmed 14 new positive cases over the previous 24 hours, bringing the total number among the College population to more than 70.

Keuka College has become one of the latest colleges to transition to all-remote learning for a while because of a spike in COVID-19 cases.

The college notes that the Yates County Department of Public Health confirmed on Friday that 12 Keuka students tested positive for the coronavirus in the previous 24 hours. That brought the number of active cases at the college to 18, with one case resolved.
