WACO, TX — Baylor University is testing a portion of residence in Collins Hall after detecting traces of COVID-19 in the sewage.

The university has initiated a target testing of 15% of the residents in the dorm. This is in addition to the 5% weekly random sample.

Baylor is also closely monitoring Collins Hall.

This comes after residents at Martin Hall were told to "reside in place" following a spike in cases. The "Men of Martin" were released Thursday at 6 a.m.
