Members of the Marquette School of Dentistry’s second-year class have been put into quarantine after concerns of potential exposure to COVID-19 occurred last weekend.
Exposure to COVID-19 occurred off of campus and not in a clinical setting.
Students will be quarantined from activities on campus and inside clinics.
“Upon learning of the exposure, the Dental School moved swiftly to take this pre-emptive measure,” University Spokesperson Chris Stolarski, said. “Testing is underway and all students are adhering to the university’s self-isolation guidelines.”
The exact number of positive tests among the second-year dental students remains unknown, along with the number of students put in quarantine.
