As of the end of April, 10 Auburn University employees and 12 students have tested positive for the coronavirus, according to Fred Kam, medical director for the Auburn University Medical Clinic.
On April 20, Kam reported that nine employees and 11 students tested positive for COVID-19.
"We were concerned we might see a few people who got infected from Easter weekend but only saw one that we could say with certainty," Kam said in an email.
There are no students or employees hospitalized as of Thursday afternoon, according to Kam. One employee and one student have been discharged from the hospital, Kam said.
At the beginning of the month, there were five students and four Auburn University employees who tested positive for COVID-19.
Last week, Kam reported that Roger Rice, who was a senior lecturer in the School of Building Science, died from COVID-19 complications.
