A coronavirus outbreak occurred this summer on a street near the University of Southern California where many brotherhoods are located, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The university found around 40 cases of people living on 28th Street who tested positive for the COVID-19 test, said Dr. Sarah Van Orman, US Student Health Officer.

Van Orman said that a significant number were associated with four brotherhood houses, but it was not clear that the infections involved members of the brotherhood, who often rent rooms during the summer, the Times reported Thursday.

The epidemic is now mostly over, with no new cases for the past week or so, said Van Orman.

Overall, some 150 students and employees of the USC have tested positive for the virus.

The university’s plans for the 2020-2021 academic year predict that most students will learn online, but some will be on campus, with measures such as close physical distance in place.

Accommodations will be limited to one student per bedroom in USC residences, suites and apartments. Some rooms will remain empty so that students can quarantine the space if infections occur during the semester.

On August 3, USC will have an external company that will launch a campus population testing program to identify, isolate, track contacts and contain new infections.
