2 students, 1 employee at Cal State Northridge receive treatment for coronavirus

NORTHRIDGE — Two students and an employee at Cal State Northridge were being treated Thursday after being diagnosed with the coronavirus.

Two of the cases were confirmed by medical professionals and one reported the diagnosis to the school, according to a Wednesday statement from the university.

“Our thoughts are with each of the affected individuals as they receive the medical care they need,” the statement said.

The employee has been on campus in the past week, but the two students have not. Both students reside in a neighboring county, the university said.

Anyone who came in close contact with the three patients either has been or will be notified immediately if they need to isolate themselves or self- monitor, the university said.

“Facilities that have been visited by the employee have been closed and will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected,” CSUN said.

The school transitioned to online classes Monday.

Last week the school disclosed two students were being tested for coronavirus.

On Tuesday, the university said tests for both students came back negative.
