East Tennessee State University officials announced Thursday that two members of its community have tested positive this week for the COVID-19 virus. One of the cases involves a student and the other is an employee, and there is connection with the two cases, a university spokesman said.
“We are pleased to report that both individuals are continuing to improve,” said the spokesman.
The Northeast Tennessee Regional Health Office coordinated contact tracing for both of these cases and will notify anyone who may have been in contact with these two individuals. Moving forward, the university will not provide updates on every confirmed COVID-19 case among our students, faculty and staff. We send our best wishes to these two individuals and to the entire ETSU community and region during this challenging and difficult time.
