Positive COVID cases reported by OSU sorority
August 15, 2020
Oklahoma State University values transparency in communicating the status of COVID cases on our Stillwater campus. Last night OSU officials learned of 23 positive COVID cases in an off-campus sorority house. The rapid antigen testing was performed at an off-campus health care facility.
Due to the nature of this situation, the entire chapter house is in isolation or quarantine and will be prohibited from leaving the facility. One member of the sorority who lives elsewhere is among those who tested positive and will also remain in isolation. All involved are currently being monitored by OSU and Payne County Health Department and contact tracing is being conducted to further protect the campus community.
The services of a third-party contractor have been enlisted to disinfect the facility and will do so again after the two-week isolation and quarantine period. OSU will continue to keep you informed regarding COVID testing statistics as the semester progresses.
