Central Michigan University President Robert Davies announced on March 26 that two members of the CMU community tested positive for COVID-19.

The university says that these are the first two cases related to the university. 

The individuals have been identified as students. 

One student traveled to a different state for spring break and returned to a campus residence hall and had been on campus in the last 24 hours. The other returned to a permanent residence in another city. 

The on-campus student is now isolated in accordance with CDC guidelines, according to the university. 

The university said they are committed to doing everything they can to support these students and slow the spread of COVID-19.
