An Auburn University student has tested positive for the coronavirus, according to Fred Kam, the medical director for the Auburn University Medical Clinic.
"We have a confirmed case from a student who traveled out of the country for spring break," Kam said in an email to The Plainsman.
The student, who lives off campus and has been taking online classes since the beginning of this semester, "posed no risk" to other students or the campus community, besides a roommate who is currently under self quarantine, according to Kam.
"The direct contacts to this student have all been already notified about the possible exposure and asked to voluntarily self quarantine for at least 14 days," Kam said. "The student is not hospitalized and in self isolation."
The test came back positive on Monday, Kam said.
