Four students and two staff members have tested positive for COVID-19 according to a press release sent out Tuesday afternoon.
Vice Chancellor for Advancement George Cotton said those infected are in quarantine off campus for 10-14 days. Cotton said it appears the staffers were infected through community spread outside the campus. He noted that they are not faculty members.
“Only thing we can determine, based on their isolation period, it does not appear that we have had any student-to-student or student-to-staff transmission,” Cotton said. “Because to date,the university has not been able to identify positive cases that fall within that two week window.”
No information was provided in regards to how the students became infected, nor if the students attended classes in person or were learning online.
Students began moving onto campus Aug. 10. Classes resumed Aug. 17.
