Ten Cal State Long Beach students and two community-member club advisors are in self-quarantine amid concerns they may have been exposed to coronavirus during a recent event in Washington, D.C., officials announced Sunday.

College officials said the students and advisors have not shown any symptoms after attending an event last week in Washington, D.C., where three attendees — who are not connected to the campus — tested positive for COVID-19, which is caused by the new coronavirus. The self-quarantine is being done “out of an abundance of caution,” Dr. Kimberly Fodran, co-director of student health services at the college, said in a prepared statement.

The college did not specify what out-of-state event the group attended.

“Because one of our attendees at the event in Washington lives in student housing, that facility is also being specially cleaned as a preventative measure,” the statement read. “As noted in an email to campus yesterday, our campus has initiated additional cleaning protocols across campus.”
