The Times received a copy of a letter tonight that was sent from “UC Merced Emergency Management” to the Campus Community regarding COVID-19.
It reads …
An undergraduate student at UC Merced has reported symptoms today consistent with COVID-19 and is awaiting test results. We wanted to share this with our campus community.
The university is working to identify those with whom this student may have had contact and will work with Merced County health officials as required.
The student is self-quarantined.
We remain committed to the health and safety of every member of our campus and will continue to provide updates as we have them.
