St George’s University wishes to correct false reports on social media of coronavirus among the university community.
No students, employees, or visitors are suspected of contracting the coronavirus.
Three students with common upper respiratory complaints similar to a common cold were screened, deemed safe, and out of an abundance of caution, were offered individual dorm rooms for self-isolation. The students have no travel history to mainland China and have not been in contact with individuals who have visited China during the last two weeks.
No member of the university community has presented with symptoms that meet the diagnostic threshold for coronavirus.
St George’s University continues to work in close collaboration with the Ministry of Health and will observe all government directives and universal protocols to maintain the safety of the campus and wider community.
