LONG BEACH (CBSLA) – Several students and counselors from California State University Long Beach are quarantined due to coronavirus problems.
University officials said ten students and two advisers attended an 18,000-person conference in Washington, D.C., where three people ended up being positive for the virus.
Cristy Fajardo from CBS2 / KCAL9 reports that those tested positive at the conference have no connection to the CSULB campus. However, university officials asked the participants to quarantine as a precaution. They say that one of the participants of the CSULB lived in student accommodation. This person has since been housed in a private room where meals are delivered and the area has been disinfected. University officials say other participants in the self-quarantined CSULB conference live off campus.
University officials say there is no reason to believe that people in self-quarantine have contracted COVID-19, also known as the new coronavirus.
They point out that CSULB has no known or confirmed cases.
