As far as dealing with the positive cases on campus, the Yeshiva has established the following guidelines.
Any people who tested positive, or experienced symptoms, such as fever, flu-like aches, or loss of taste or smell are designated as Group A. This group will be required to go through a full quarantine on campus.
