15 people test positive for COVID-19 from Duke University

Fifteen members of the Duke community have tested presumptively positive for COVID-19, school officials announced Tuesday.

These 15 people are in addition to four other members who were diagnosed with coronavirus in another country and are remaining there until they have recovered.

The entire group was part of an overseas travel group with Duke.

Letter sent out on Tuesday, March, 17:

“Dear Colleagues,

We have been informed that at least 15 additional members of the Duke community who were part of the same overseas travel group that we reported on Friday have tested presumptively positive for COVID-19. Four other members of this group were diagnosed with COVID-19 in another country and are remaining there until they have recovered.

All members of this group were directed by Durham County Department of Public Health and Duke to undergo a self-quarantine at their homes off-campus upon returning to Durham and that will continue until they receive medical clearance. We understand that the individuals who tested positive are in good health.

Durham County Public Health and Duke Health will work to test all other individuals who traveled with this group.

    Thanks NotCoach.

    I was look for the travel spot, and could not find mention of that.

    However you hit the Communist nail on the head.

Will Nifong charge them with a crime?

Hey Notcoach, it’s even crazier than that. Guess where Duke has an international satellite campus?

Wuhan China.
