6 staff members test positive for COVID-19 at Georgia dental school

Six staff members at the Dental College of Georgia at Augusta University have tested positive for COVID-19, university officials confirmed with Fox's WFXG.

The six staff members with COVID-19 are all asymptomatic, according to an email to faculty from Carol Lefebvre, DDS, dean of the Dental College of Georgia.

After one employee tested positive, subsequent cases were identified. The six employees are currently in isolation at home.

According to the email, the university environmental service team disinfected high-touch areas, including the lobby, reception area, restrooms, vending machines, stair rails, elevators and the clinic. All areas were treated with Oxivir chemicals in misting machines and wipes.

Everyone at the dental college is now required to wear a mask and must be screened as well.
