WVU students testing positive for COVID-19 confirmed

The Monongalia County Health Department and West Virginia University were notified Wednesday (April 8) that more than a dozen WVU students have tested positive for novel coronavirus COVID-19. Although investigations and contact tracing are ongoing, it is believed 14 students returned to private, off-campus residences upon returning to Morgantown. As a reminder, WVU campuses have been closed and access to buildings has been unavailable since March 20, with limited exceptions. There is no indication that the students have been on campus.
