BERKELEY, Calif. (KRON) — A U.C. Berkeley grad student has tested positive for the novel coronavirus, campus officials announced Saturday.
The student doesn’t live on campus or in the city of Berkeley. They have self-isolated at home and the person is in good condition with no serious symptoms.
U.C. Berkeley officials are working with health officials and following CDC, state and local health guidelines in responding to this case.
Officials determined Saturday evening that there are no high risk contacts from this case, meaning no one is at significantly higher risk of contracting COVID-19 from the infected person than would be expected in the general population.
Deep cleaning to any appropriate areas will be conducted.
Due to privacy concerns, campus authorities say they will not release any information involving specific student records or private health care information.
