The University of Southern Indiana (USI) announced on Wednesday that seven people working on the University's campus have tested positive for COVID-19.

According to USI, six non-USI employees who were working on campus tested positive for coronavirus. Contact tracing protocols were then enacted, identifying the potential exposure of two individuals employed by USI.

One of the USI employees who was identified as having potential exposure did test positive for COVID-19, the University said. The second USI employee identified as having potential exposure has not yet been tested but is seeking to do so on Wednesday.

All six of the non-USI employees who were working on campus have since left the campus and are now in isolation. The coronavirus-positive USI employee is also in isolation, as well as the USI employee who is seeking a test.

USI employees and students are being asked to self-monitor daily for symptoms of COVID-19.

Anyone associated with the University who has symptoms of the virus, and anyone who has been exposed to the virus, should fill out the self-reporting for located on the COVID-19 page of the USI website, remain off campus, and contact their primary care physician for evaluation.
