Multiple COVID-19 cases appear at Auburn dorm, fraternity

Auburn University

 

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Auburn University said a number of students are quarantined after COVID-19 cases were reported in a campus residence hall and a fraternity house. 

Spokesman Preston Sparks said Wednesday that the university is aware of multiple students who have tested positive for COVID-19. He did not say how many students are quarantined. The school did not name the fraternity or dorm.

Sparks said the students will remain quarantined until each has received medical clearance. The students will complete coursework remotely while quarantined.

Auburn has about 30,000 students on its main campus. The university is requiring face coverings indoors and outdoors on campus.
