Arizona Western College confirms three staff cases of COVID-19

Yuma, AZ (May 26, 2020) – Today teams at Arizona Western College confirm that in the past 24 hours, three (3) members of the college’s essential teams who have been working at the Yuma Campus have tested positive for COVID-19.

All three are resting at home, recuperating, and their teammates send best wishes to them and their families.

All three employees were quick to take their symptoms seriously, to self-isolate as soon they felt symptoms, to seek testing, and to share the results with Human Resources.

AWC has made remote work for the vast majority of employees a priority since about mid-March, which has greatly limited the chance for spread. Two of the impacted employees have been off campus since May 14, the third employee since May 18. AWC Human Resources team members have been working to determine which co-workers these employees had contact with immediately prior to becoming symptomatic so those co-workers can be notified and seek testing.

Anyone who thinks they've been exposed can find testing information at the Yuma County Health Department daily update here.
