A person who works for the custodial service partner at Grambling State University has tested positive for the coronavirus, according to a statement released Friday on the school’s website.
“The individual self-reported to the University and is currently in self-quarantine with no severe symptoms,” the statement said. “We express our well wishes on their recovery and offer our continued support.”
“The individual was last on campus, March 23, 2020, and had limited contact with others. Those team members who had potential contact with this individual have been contacted and instructed to self-quarantine and contact a medical professional if they experience symptoms.
“Personnel who continue reporting to campus to carry out essential functions for student support are observing increased sanitation practices, social distancing, and reducing campus density.”
On March 13 the school announced the suspension of all classes from March 16-20 and encouraged all students to depart from the campus by March 23. Students are currently taking classes online.
