Some Centre College students quarantined as precaution against coronavirus

Several international Centre College students who recently returned to campus from China, where there’s a widespread outbreak of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus, have been quarantined as a precaution, according to school officials. Last week, Centre officials stated they were “keeping a watchful eye” on students who had returned home to China during the winter break and were back on campus, as well as other study abroad students, as the coronavirus situation developed. “On Saturday we received a recommendation from the Kentucky Department for Public Health, in consultation with the Centers for Disease Control, asking that those with recent travel history from China be isolated for a period of 14 days after their arrival,” said Centre’s Chief Communications Officer Michael Strysick on Wednesday.
