TCU student living in campus apartment tests positive for COVID-19
TCU learned late in the day on April 1 that a student living in a TCU apartment has tested positive for COVID-19. The student has been in self-quarantine while awaiting test results for COVID-19, which were submitted March 19. The student is doing well, has been symptom-free for seven days and is beyond the 14-day, self-quarantine period.
TCU will notify social and residential groups with whom this student has interacted in the last two to three weeks, to the extent possible. Although notification of the case has occurred outside of the 14 days of required quarantine, out of an abundance of caution and in keeping with TCU policy, the student’s apartment and common areas will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized under public health guidance.
COVID-19 – Positive case notifications
Per public health guidance, TCU will announce only positive, confirmed COVID-19 test results.
On April 1, TCU sent a mass notification to all students, faculty and staff of the first COVID-19 case reported on the TCU campus. Moving forward, additional confirmed cases will be posted on this microsite (tcu.edu/coronavirus) under the tab, “Staying Informed.” Additionally, information will be shared with social and residential groups who have interacted with the COVID-19 positive individual(s) over the prior two to three weeks, to the extent possible.
Stay home, and work and learn safe
Please take every precaution to stay healthy and stop the spread of coronavirus. Remember to wash your hands frequently, cover your mouth if you cough or sneeze and practice social distancing when you must go out. If you experience flu-like symptoms and have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19, call your health care provider.
