|To the University of Miami Community:|
Consistent with our ongoing efforts to provide you with the latest information, we are writing to notify you that a student from the University of Miami Coral Gables campus has tested positive for COVID-19. The student lives off campus, has been in self-isolation, and is in good condition.
Public health officials are directly contacting individuals known to have been in close contact with the student to provide information and guidance.
Out of respect for patient privacy and because this is a public health issue, there will not be any further information about individual cases.
Our best wishes have been extended to the student for a rapid recovery.
Your health and safety continue to be essential concerns for the University. By acting together—following the advice of public health experts to practice social distancing, avoid public spaces, limit movement, and exercise good hand hygiene—we can help slow the spread of the virus.
The University’s dedicated COVID-19 site, which can be found at coronavirus.miami.edu, is updated constantly and will continue to serve as the best and most up-to-date source for information regarding the University’s proactive and comprehensive response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Information specific to our medical community can be found at my.med.miami.edu.
