On Monday, the RWU Emergency Response Team sent a notice to the campus community that 15 students and one faculty member have been asked to self-quarantine for two weeks out of an abundance of caution. The group attended a Conservative Political Action Conference late last month which has since been connected to a case of the virus.
The university said none of the attendees have exhibited symptoms and there’s no concern of exposure on campus, stressing that there’s no need for those who’ve had contact with the attendees to quarantine.
The campus has undergone rigorous cleaning and sanitizing over the past six weeks, according to the university, and classes will resume as normal after spring break. Anyone with questions is asked to call RWU Health Services at (401) 254-3156.
