EVANSVILLE, Ind (WEHT) Six non-USI employees working on campus have tested positive for COVID-19. One employee who was potentially exposed has now also tested positive. A second employee is getting tested Wednesday and is home self-quarantining.

We’re told all those who tested positive or were potentially exposed have left campus and are now isolated.

USI employees and students are asked to self-monitor and check daily for symptoms of COVID-19. Anyone with symptoms of COVID-19, or who has been exposed to someone with COVID-19, should fill out the self-reporting form, remain off campus and contact their primary care physician for evaluation. Exposure and contact tracing plans have been developed and will be implemented when needed.
