5 C.S.U.L.B students test positive for Coronavirus
CSULB President Jane Close Conoley announced Saturday that five students tested positive for coronavirus and that all on-campus residents are under quarantine.
What they're saying:
In a statement titled "Update on COVID-19 Cases", university president Conoley wrote that "Late yesterday, we became aware of a number of students who have not heeded our guidance related to COVID-19 precautions and congregated socially off campus earlier this month."
Of the five students that tested positive for the coronavirus, four live on campus in the residence halls, and one lives off-campus.
Conoley told the Daily 49er, "The faculty teaching in-person classes will be greatly inconvenienced by the reckless behavior of a few students."
The university will pause all in-person instruction for two weeks and review the number of employees on campus to ascertain when it's safe to return.
The Daily 49er reported that the university would COVID test all 328 on-campus residents, and contact tracing will be conducted.
CSULB will be cleaning and disinfecting buildings "as needed."
The university opened an investigation into student behavior to try to limit any further COVID outbreaks.
