Residents of Alumni Hall are subject to a modified quarantine.

“They are asked to access the University’s testing facilities, avoid close contact with other residents and the community, limit contact outside their residence as much as possible to essential travel and continue to follow other public health measures until the epidemic is ended. ” According to a press release from the university. “The risk of exposure to other staff, faculty and students is considered extremely low. “

Four cases have been confirmed by WECHU.
