MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (WTNH) — A Wesleyan University student is in isolation after showing symptoms of coronavirus over the weekend.

Wesleyan said they are working with the State Department of Public Health and centers for disease control to determine if the student has the virus. Tests have been done and they’re waiting for results to come back from the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta. The results could be in the next week or two. No official diagnosis has yet been made.

Wesleyan University sent a statement to News 8 Saturday saying in part, “The student is in isolation, and we are providing healthcare and other services. We have been in touch with everyone with whom the student had close contact since returning to campus in order to monitor them. To date, none of these individuals have exhibited symptoms of concern.”

The student was traveling in Asia and returned to the United States with a fever and cough.

No individuals the student was traveling with have symptoms of the virus.
