An undisclosed number of students living on campus at the University of St. Thomas have tested positive for COVID-19, according to an email sent Thursday to student residents by Director of Residence Life Ana Alicia Lopez.
The email did not specify how many cases there are.
“…we have had some positive cases of COVID-19 within the residence halls as well as some students who have needed to quarantine due to exposure to COVID-19,” the email read.
“Thankfully we’ve been able to utilize our quarantine and isolation protocols along with our Healthy Celt Trackers to respond to these cases as they’ve arisen,” Lopez wrote, “ and have swiftly responded to all reported cases and/or exposures.”
Lopez told students to continue to follow UST’s safety guidelines, which include wearing masks while outside their rooms, practicing social distancing, informing Residence Life if they develop symptoms of COVID-19 or have been exposed to COVID-19, refraining from bringing non-residents into the residence halls, getting daily temperature checks, and getting tested monthly for COVID-19.
This is a developing story.
