UC Davis has isolated three students "out of an abundance of caution" over the spread of COVID-19, the university said Thursday. The students are roommates who were living in Kearney Hall, according to officials.
Two of the individuals are not showing symptoms of COVID-19, so per CDC guidelines are not being tested, said Dr. Ron Chapman, Yolo County Health Officer, at a press conference. One student has shown mild symptoms and is being tested for the coronavirus. This student is not on campus and is being isolated at home.
Dr. Chapman said public health protocols to contain the spread of a virus like COVID-19 include isolation and quarantine of people.
"In Yolo and on the UC Davis Campus," he said, "there is no evidence of the spread or transmission of coronavirus."
UC Davis is located on unincorporated land in both Solano and Yolo counties. Campus health center staff are asking every student who comes in about recent travel history and about any possible contact with someone known to be sick with COVID-19 , said Dr. Cindy Schorzman, medical director of Student Health and Counseling Services.
