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.

Deep cleaning to any appropriate areas will be conducted.
