Franklin College is committed to protecting the health and safety of our campus community. Our Return to Campus Plan outlines the COVID-19 mitigation protocols and strategies we have developed to help avoid the spread of infection on our campus. As students, faculty and staff return for the start of fall semester, we realize our campus community may experience confirmed cases. This webpage will provide weekly updates on the status of those cases.

Due to privacy laws, the college is limited as to what information can be provided in relation to COVID-19.  The chart below tracks the weekly updates and the total number of confirmed cases within our campus community to date. Weekly numbers may be updated retroactively to reflect confirmation of cases received subsequent to posting.
