An Illinois State University spokesperson stated Tuesday that a student living in a residence hall has tested positive for COVID-19, according to WGLT.
Officials stated that the person who tested positive has left the university for a temporary period of time to recover.
According to WGLT, the university declined to identify which residence hall the student was staying in or when and where the student was tested.
While most classes will be in a virtual format for the fall semester, the residence halls are open with additional precautions.
As a part of the university's reopening plan, ISU extended its move-in period for students living on campus. The move-in period began Aug. 7.
Residence hall precautions include limited guests and required face coverings in public areas, such as lobby areas and bathrooms.
In early May, ISU reported its first on-campus case. In addition to the first reported case, seven ISU students contracted COVID-19 at a private residence in May. Four student-athletes tested positive in June and July as well.
