To the Wesleyan community:

 

I’m writing to inform you that the Centers for Disease Control has reported that the Wesleyan student being monitored has tested NEGATIVE for the coronavirus. The student is doing well.

 

As I wrote in my earlier messages, please take common sense steps to prevent the spread of illness during this cold and flu season. This includes not sharing drinks; coughing into the crook of one’s arm rather than the hand; and frequently using hand sanitizer or washing hands in soap and water for 20 seconds.

 

If you have a cough and fever, and have recently been to China or have been exposed to a person with known coronavirus, please seek immediate medical attention. We will continue to monitor this global health situation, but there is no need for alarm.
