Infections Reported at Berkeley and UC-SF

From the Daily Cal:

A UC Berkeley graduate student in the sociology department has tested positive for COVID-19, colloquially known as the coronavirus, the first reported on-campus case of the disease.
UCPD sent a Nixle alert saying the student lives off-campus. The alert also said campus officials are working to determine who has been in contact with the patient and will direct them to self-isolate.
Vice Chancellor of Administration Marc Fisher and Assistant Vice Chancellor of University Health Services Guy Nicolette also sent a campuswide email, stating that the individual does not live in Berkeley and has self-isolated in their city of residence. According to the email, the individual with COVID-19 is in “good condition” and is not exhibiting any “serious symptoms.”...
March 15, 5:50 a.m.: Two health care workers at UCSF tested positive for coronavirus, a hospital spokesperson confirmed to The Chronicle. Both workers are quarantined and the hospital is contacting any patients, doctors, nurses or staff who may have come into contact with them.
