From STAFF REPORTS
Tusculum University was notified Friday morning, March 20, that one of the university’s students tested positive for the coronavirus.
A press release from Tusculum said the University “immediately set in motion a plan instructing all nonessential personnel to begin working remotely. We are also telling all of our students who are on campus that we are closing the residence halls. We are notifying the health department of all campus members who have been in contact with the infected student so those individuals can be contacted by a health department official regarding next steps.”
The university and classes will continue to function, and we will remain on track to finish the remainder of the spring semester.
“Our prayers go to the student who tested positive,” the release said, “as well as anyone else who might have had contact with that person.”
