University officials are now sounding the alarm about a potential coronavirus exposure on campus. 

In an email sent to Hansen Hall residents who accessed the residence hall during the extended spring break, they were informed that they could have potentially been exposed to COVID-19.

Students who were in the building at that time, are asked to self-isolate for 14 days.

“It is important that you monitor your health status for the next 14 days, because of a likely exposure,” the email read. “In addition, you should practice social distancing/self-isolation during this 14-day period.”

Currently, there have been 28 reported cases of coronavirus in South Dakota, but none in Brookings County. 

If residents who were potentially exposed to the virus start to show symptoms such as coughing or difficulty breathing, they are urged to seek medical care. 

SDSU students are asked to call the Student Health Clinic at 605-688-4157, or contact their medical provider
