ASHLAND – An Ashland University student who public health officials identified as a Person Under Investigation for COVID-19 has reported to the University that the test result was negative, according to a press release issued Thursday.
The student was part of a group of AU students who attended last month’s Conservative Political Action Conference event in National Harbor, Maryland. One of the CPAC attendees – not an AU student – later tested positive for the virus.
The student was the only one in the AU group who became symptomatic. The others, who also were contacted by the Ashland County Health Department, followed the guidelines for self-quarantine.
None of the students in the group is currently on campus.
