Some students come back from Spring Break with a hangover or an STD. However, at least five students at the University of Tampa got the Coronavirus.
On Friday, the University of Tampa announced that one of their students tested positive for COVID-19.
“Today we learned that a student who resides off-campus has tested positive for COVID-19. The Florida Department of Health is following protocol to identify & quarantine any individuals who have had contact with this individual.”University of Tampa via Twitter
Yesterday, they followed up that tweet by saying even more students tested positive.
“UT has been notified that five UT students, traveling together and with other UT students during Spring Break, have tested positive for COVID-19. We sincerely wish our students, and any others who may be affected, a full and rapid recovery.”University of Tampa via Twitter
No other details are known at this time like where they spent the week partying.
Even though UT has transitioned to online classes, the residence halls will remain open until the end of the semester on May 9th.
