COLLEGE STATION, TX  — Texas A&M University says at least two students and a member of its College Station staff have tested positive for COVID-19.

The school previously announced a female student in her 20’s who traveled to New York tested positive. Texas A&M University said she does not live on campus and has not visited campus since returning from her travels.

The University said on March 20 that another off-campus student has tested positive after following appropriate protocols in seeking treatment at the on-campus Student Health Services (SHS).

The individual was tested at SHS and directed to self-isolate at his off-campus residence.

The Brazos County Health District has tracked contact patterns to be in communication with those with whom these individuals came in close contact.

The University says another individual who works in a small area of the Veterinary School tested positive.

And an individual at the Round Rock campus of the Texas A&M Health Science Center has also tested positive.

Health authorities have been notified and contact tracing begun.

They say the community spread case was not one of the aforementioned Texas A&M cases.
