by

A college student at Wesleyan University in Connecticut is being monitored after showing symptoms of coronavirus, school officials announced on Sunday.

According to university officials, the student is in isolation after travelling internationally in Asia and returning with a fever and cough.

“Out of an abundance of caution, we are working with the state Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control to determine if the student has contracted the coronavirus or not,” the school said in a statement.

The university said it is providing the student healthcare and other services, and has reached out to everyone the student had close contact with since returning to campus.
