USU COVID Update
The university offered testing to 483 students in the Living Learning Center (LLC) community on the Logan campus over the last three days.
On Monday and Tuesday USU’s testing center sampled 100 students who were targeted for quicker testing. All the remaining students living in the LLC community were tested on Wednesday with the help of the Utah Department of Health’s mobile testing unit. As of Thursday, there are 31 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the LLC community.
USU President Noelle Cockett says face coverings and social distancing in classrooms has helped to contain exposure to the virus.
As of Thursday, 307 students, staff, or faculty members at USU campuses or centers across Utah reported confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the last three weeks. These “active” cases include 298 students. The cases include those who self-reported to the university, cases identified through testing on campus, and cases the university has received notice of through local health departments.
